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
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
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.
