Immediately after Oklahoma receiver Justin McCay announced he would be transferring to Kansas in early January, all of Jayhawk Nation began wondering when he would become eligible to play. Now, it appears as if a decision may at last be on the horizon.

Per a Thursday press release from Kansas Athletics, the NCAA has informed the program it will hear Justin McCay's case Wed., April 18.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound receiver - formerly of Roeland Park (KS) Bishop Miege - has requested a waiver to play immediately, and forgo the year on the sidelines typically required of transfers.

During his regular Tuesday press conference, Head Coach Charlie Weis expressed guarded optimism regarding the NCAA's decision.

"In Justin's case, it is not just one thing, there are a whole bunch of things involved," Weis said. "I am cautiously optimistic after they review that the whole case will have a favorable outcome."

Having McCay for the 2012 season would be a huge boost to the Jayhawks receiving corps, as the former five-star prospect possesses a combination of size and speed rarely seen on Mount Oread.
