Former Red Raiders QB remains subject to transfer restrictions
Texas Tech on Friday denied quarterback Baker Mayfield’s appeal to transfer to Oklahoma without restriction. A five-member panel unanimously rejected the appeal.
Mayfield remains subject to NCAA and Big 12 Conference transfer rules, meaning he must serve a one-year residency requirement at his new school and sit out the 2014 season, plus lose a year of eligibility for transferring within the conference.
Mayfield left the team when the fall semester ended in early December, after which Tech denied Mayfield permission to contact any other Big 12 programs.
