Jack Wohlabaugh transferred from Ohio State to Duke after two seasons with the Buckeyes in January.
Wohlabaugh was set to enroll at Duke for the start of spring semester and after playing two seasons and transferring, would have to sit out this upcoming season and then have two more seasons of eligibility. Duke, however, is trying to expedite the process.
The Blue Devils are seeking an NCAA waiver to allow Wohlabaugh to play this upcoming season and not have to sit out. Duke is having to replace its starting center from the past two seasons in Austin Davis, which is where Wohlabaugh comes in.
Unfortunately, if the NCAA holds up its rules, the Blue Devils will be searching for a different starting center in the fall.
“We don’t know what his eligibility status will be,” Duke coach David Cutcliffe said. “We’re hoping we’ll get a chance to play him.”
Wohlabaugh was a 3-star prospect in the Class of 2016 according to 247Sports. He redshirted in 2016 and then didn’t play for the Buckeyes last season.
Evan Lisle, who was the starting right tackle for the Blue Devils this past season, also transferred from Ohio State as a graduate transfer.
