Wake Forest running back Josh Harris ruled ineligible
Wake Forest running back Josh Harris has been ruled ineligible for his senior season, the school announced Thursday.
The team begins practice for fall camp on Friday.
Spokesman Steve Shutt said the school has asked the NCAA for a waiver to restore his eligibility and the Demon Deacons hope to receive an answer in the next two weeks. Shutt declined to say if Harris’ eligibility issues related to academics, citing Wake Forest’s policy on student privacy.
Harris has rushed for 1,760 yards and 15 touchdowns in three seasons and led the Demon Deacons with 608 yards rushing last season. Wake Forest begins its season at home against Presbyterian on Aug. 29.
