Coastal Carolina offensive lineman Brock Hoffman transferred to Virginia Tech following the 2018 college football season. NCAA requires non-graduate transfer players to sit for a season if they choose to transfer to an FBS program, unless they receive a waiver. Hoffman attempted to receive a family medical hardship waiver from the NCAA, but was denied.
Hoffman revealed his mother had a brain tumor removed and is still suffering from facial paralysis and eye sight issues.
He transferred to Virginia Tech so he could be closer to home and help take care of her, but now has to sit out the 2019 college football season after being denied a waiver.
