Jay Prosch won't have to sit season

Auburn fullback Jay Prosch won't have to sit out a season after transferring last year from Illinois.

While most transfer students have to sit a year, the NCAA cleared Prosch's waiver since he changed schools to be closer to his sick mother, Iris, who is battling cancer.

"I'm extremely blessed and very thankful to have my waiver cleared by the NCAA," Prosch said, according to the Birmingham News. "I'm excited and can't wait for my mother and family to be able to see me play this fall."

Prosch enrolled at Auburn in January and took part in spring practice.
