Those close to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield said they might keep filing appeals with the NCAA before pursuing any legal action.
It appears they're going back to the NCAA for at least round two.
Mayfield's attorney, Jim Darnell, told ESPN on Wednesday that OU would submit paperwork to the NCAA once again in hopes of getting Mayfield eligible this season.
The Mayfields filed paperwork with the NCAA two weeks ago after making a last attempt to convince Texas Tech to change its stance on Mayfield's transfer.
Mayfield, a walk-on, left Texas Tech after last season to transfer to Oklahoma. The Red Raiders have blocked the transfer, meaning that without a successful appeal not only would Mayfield have to sit out this season but he would lose a year of eligibility as well.
Darnell, originally from Oklahoma City but now based in El Paso, Texas, represented Johnny Manziel last year.
“If they wanted to take care of this kid, they could have done it right,” Darnell told The Oklahoman last week.
