According to Tim May of, 2015 three-star OL signee Mirko Jurkovic Jr. will not be able to enroll at Ohio State due to academics. The 2015 class is set to arrive on Sunday.

Sources told May that Jurkovic, who trained at Florida's renowned IMG Academy and had been committed since December, had "an academic issue," but confessed the exact nature was unknown.

Jurkovic is the second casualty of the 2015 class. Jamel Dean, originally the second commit of the class, was ruled medically ineligible after early-enrolling in Columbus but will play at Auburn.

Ohio State's roster is at 86 players, and must be down to 85 before the season begins.

As of now, it's unclear if Jurkovic will attend a junior college and attempt to re-enroll at Ohio State or if he'll seek asylum elsewhere.
