AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -Texas wide receiver Jordan Shipley has been granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA.
Shipley missed the 2004 and 2005 seasons because of knee and hamstring injuries. He is the top receiver for the No. 3 Longhorns with 79 catches for 982 yards and 11 touchdowns.
The third-team AP All-American also returned a punt and a kickoff for TDs this season, becoming just the fourth Longhorn to have both in a career.
``It is definitely a blessing to be able to play one more season at Texas,'' Shipley said in a statement released by the school Monday night.
Texas plays Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 5.
