West Virginia expects NCAA to clear Grier to start 2017

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen says he expects suspended former Florida quarterback Wil Grier to be eligible for the start of the 2017 season.

Grier was suspended for one year in the middle of last season for testing positive for performance enhancing drugs. The suspension would have sidelined him for about half this season, but he decided to transfer out of Florida. That move will require him to sit out the entire 2016 season. It was unclear if the suspension would carry over to '17.

Holgorsen said in statement Friday that Grier is enrolled at West Virginia, but he could not officially confirm his eligibility until the summer of 2017.
