Boise State issued the following statement Wednesday regarding former defensive lineman Antoine Turner, who earned national attention after he dealt with homelessness before arriving two years ago. He did not play last season as a senior after playing 13 games as a junior in 2014.
“Antoine Turner was held out of the 2015 football season as Boise State conducted an investigation in conjunction with the NCAA regarding a transfer eligibility matter stemming from his time in junior college.
“Boise State received a formal decision this week stating that Turner has been rendered permanently ineligible, and that no further action is required of the University. Additionally, no penalties were levied against the school.
“While Turner’s collegiate football career is over, he has remained on scholarship while continuing his coursework toward a degree in communications, and is expected to graduate the summer of 2016.”
