NCAA grants NC State QB Finley extra year of eligibility

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) North Carolina State quarterback Ryan Finley has received an additional season of eligibility by the NCAA.

N.C. State announced the NCAA's decision Tuesday, making Finley a redshirt sophomore this season. He will have two more years of eligibility after this one.

Finley redshirted at Boise State in 2013 and played in just three games for the Broncos last season before suffering a season-ending ankle injury. He graduated from Boise State in three years and transferred to N.C. State this spring.

He was listed as the co-starter along with redshirt sophomore Jalan McClendon on the depth chart released Tuesday.
