Former UTEP signee denied waiver appeal
Updated: Friday, September 6 2013, 04:33 PM MDT
Former UTEP signee Isaac Hamilton was denied a waiver by the National Letter of Intent committee and cannot this season, his father, Greg, told ESPN.com on Friday.
UTEP wouldn't release Hamilton from his NLI after he said he wanted to be closer to home to be with his ailing grandmother.
"We will challenge (the NLI),'' Isaac's father Greg Hamilton said.
UTEP signed the 6-foot-5 Saint John Bosco (Calif.) guard in November 2012, and coach Tim Floyd told ESPN.com in July, "He potentially could be our best player.''
"I'm sorry his grandmother is having health problems," Floyd said in July. "But what I'm doing I'm doing for UTEP and for everyone else. The NLI is in place so you can field a team. Young people don't have to sign a national letter of intent. You can sign a scholarship paper. The policy is in place to protect the institutions after they've spent all this money in recruiting and built their schedule around and turned down other players."
Hamilton was ranked No. 32 in his class by ESPN's RecruitingNation.
