Brandon Williams Denied Waiver

The Texas Aggie football team took a hit on Wednesday when the NCAA denied the hardship waiver for transfer RB Brandon Williams. Thus, he will redshirt during the 2012 season.

COLLEGE STATION- The waiver application submitted by Texas A&M on behalf of sophomore running back Brandon Williams, who transferred to Texas A&M from Oklahoma, was denied by the NCAA.

The initial appeal was submitted and denied by the NCAA staff on August 2. Texas A&M appealed the staff decision on August 7 and the subcommittee for legislative relief denied the appeal on August 22.

"We appreciate the NCAA's consideration of our appeal in the case of Brandon Williams," Aggie head coach Kevin Sumlin said. "We knew this was a possibility and Brandon will continue to work out with our team and help our team get better. We look forward to him playing in maroon and white in 2013."
