The University of Miami has declared eight student-athletes ineligible and has asked the NCAA to initiate the reinstatement process, according to the Miami Herald. All eight athletes are believed to be football players.
According to the source, quarterback Jacory Harris is one of the ineligible athletes.
The university was thought to declare 12 athletes ineligible; however, Miami chose not to do so for the other four since the amount of benefits each allegedly received from Nevin Shapiro totaled fewer than $100. Those four are allowed to pay back those amounts, something usually done via charity.
The NCAA will now review each player case and decide whether or not to reinstate them, along with how many games any ineligible players must sit out.
According to coach Al Golden, all 12 of the players involved in the allegations practiced on Thursday.
