Kentucky transfer Bryant Koback gets immediate eligibility at Toledo

As it turns out, Toledo will get instant Power Five help this season.

In January, Bryant Koback announced his decision to transfer from Kentucky to the MAC football program. Monday, the Toledo Blade reported that the running back has been granted immediate eligibility after Toledo officials had petitioned the NCAA for a waiver.

Koback sat out the entire 2017 season, his true freshman year, because of a serious leg injury sustained during his final season of high school football.

The redshirt freshman will now have four years to use four seasons of eligibility.

Koback was a three-star member of the Wildcats’ 2017 recruiting class. He participated in spring practice with the Rockets earlier this offseason and, after rushing for 45 yards on six carries in the spring game, is expected to contribute early and often this coming season.
