Toledo QB Phillip Ely denied sixth year of eligibility


Toledo Rockets quarterback Phillip Ely has been denied a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, according to ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

A former Alabama quarterback and three-star recruit out of Tampa, Ely redshirted his first season and then lost a year of eligibility due to transfer rules, and has dealt with injuries ever since. He rebounded quite nicely this year to throw for 2,680 yards and 21 touchdowns as Toledo went 9-2 (6-2 MAC), ultimately losing a heartbreaker to Western Michigan in the regular season finale to lose a spot in the MAC Championship Game.

This means that Ely will conclude his college career tonight against Temple in the Boca Raton Bowl, so hopefully he can shake off the disappointment and lead the Rockets to an upset victory over the Owls tonight. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
