1 min read

Well, here’s a first. Michael Turk, a punter for the Arizona State Sun Devils, skipped his junior and senior seasons to enter the NFL draft. He hired agents. He was committed to pro football. Then he went undrafted. And then no team signed him after the draft. So Turk petitioned the NCAA for a special waiver to return to school, and shockingly, the NCAA agreed. 

Michelle Gardner of the Arizona Republic broke the news, saying that it was the first time in history such a waiver had been granted. Mike Florio’s story on Pro Football Talk has more details and speculation about what this might mean.
