Syracuse offensive lineman Chris Bleich had his NCAA transfer waiver for immediate eligibility denied, sidelining him for the 2020 season this fall.
Bleich enrolled at Syracuse last January after transferring from the University of Florida and expected to compete for a starting guard position along the offensive line.
Unless an appeal is won, Bleich will not suit up for the Orange during the season.
To all the fans that showed endless support of me since I got here I want to say thank you to each and everyone of you for all your words of encouragement to me in these tough times. But sadly, today I was informed my waiver was denied by the NCAA..
