Mayfield will be eligible to play through the 2017 season after Big 12 officials approved a new rule proposal Thursday that will allow walk-ons to transfer within the conference without losing a year of eligibility, ESPN.com's Jake Trotter reports.
Grier (suspension) is expected to be eligible for the start of the 2017 season, Mitch Vingle of the Charleston Gazette-Mail reports. "Will Grier enrolled for classes here at WVU on May 16. With the timing of his transfer, and the requirements that he has to finish from the NCAA, I cannot officially confirm his eligibility until the summer of 2017. However, I fully anticipate him being eligible for the opening game of the 2017 season," said head coach Dana Holgorson.
