Kevin Short’s grades not up to par

The NCAA has ruled that Kansas cornerback Kevin Short is
academically ineligible and will have to redshirt this season.

Short, a transfer from Fort Scott Community College, started
fall camp late after completing his academic work. He was listed as
co-starter but was held out of Kansas’ season opening win against
South Dakota.

Kansas coach Charlie Weis said Friday that he was ”extremely
disappointed” with the NCAA’s decision that because Short had a
redshirt year available, he should spend it improving his
academics.

Weis said Short’s junior college transcript gave no indication
that Short would not be a successful student, and his grades and
transferable hours exceeded entrance requirements. Short, an NJCAA
All-American at Fort Scott, will have two years of eligibility
remaining after this season.
