Jacory Harris Ineligible, Expects To Play In Miami's Season-Opener, According To Report

Miami Hurricanes quarterback Jacory Harris has reportedly been deemed ineligible as the NCAA investigates his role in the massive scandal involving alleged improper benefits from former booster Nevin Shapiro. Harris is reportedly one of eight Miami football players whom the Hurricanes declared ineligible as a proactive measure, with the NCAA set to make a final decision shortly. But the news may not be all bad for Harris and the Hurricanes.

Harris reportedly believes he will be ruled eligible, and Miami has asked the NCAA to expedite its ruling in an effort to receive some kind of resolution before the season begins.

A person with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Harris is one of eight players declared ineligible by the university after an investigation turned up some proof that former booster Nevin Shapiro provided extra benefits. The school has asked the NCAA if the ineligible players may be reinstated in time for the season-opener.

Which players were deemed ineligible, and exactly how many, is still a mystery, with head coach Al Golden only saying some players had been ruled ineligible by the university. The players may be reinstated in the next week, or may be handed suspensions for their involvement in the scandal.
