SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP)– The NCAA has actually rejected a transfer waiver looking for immediate eligibility for Syracuse offensive lineman Chris Bleich.

That implies the previous Florida lineman, a redshirt sophomore, won’t be able to play this fall unless he wins an appeal.

” To all the fans that revealed unlimited assistance of me considering that I got here I want to say thank you to each and everyone of you for all your words of encouragement to me in these difficult times,” Bleich wrote Thursday on Twitter. “But unfortunately, today I was informed my waiver was rejected by the NCAA.”

The 6-foot-6, 330-pound local of Hanover Township, Pennsylvania enrolled for the spring term at Syracuse and was expected to offer the Orange required depth at guard.

The ruling was a dissatisfaction for fifth-year Orange coach Dino Babers, whose offensive line was riddled with injuries in 2015 and has tight end/defensive lineman Chris Elmore at guard for Saturday’s season opener at No. 18 North Carolina.
