East Carolina foot­ball’s attempt for Nate Har­vey to gain an ex­tra year of el­i­gi­bil­ity for this sea­son was de­nied by the NCAA, first-year coach Mike Hous­ton and the Pi­rates an­nounced Satur­day.

Har­vey was seek­ing a re­quest for med­i­cal hard­ship, based on an ab­bre­vi­ated sea­son at Ge­or­gia Mil­i­tary Col­lege because of in­jury.

He par­tic­i­pated in ECU’s first spring prac­tice Fri­day but did not prac­tice Satur­day morn­ing af­ter the Pi­rates re­ceived an of­fi­cial de­nial from the NCAA on Fri­day night. Har­vey joined Hous­ton in a post-prac­tice ad­dress to re­porters Satur­day morn­ing.

“When I had the op­por­tu­nity to take the job I had no idea who Nate Har­vey was and so over the last three months, I have had the plea­sure of get­ting to know him on a daily ba­sis,” Hous­ton said. “What an in­cred­i­ble young man. We re­spect the de­ci­sion by the NCAA, but at the same time, we are dis­ap­pointed.”

Har­vey trans­ferred to ECU from Ge­or­gia Mil­i­tary Col­lege in the spring of 2017 and last year his 14.5 sacks ranked third in the na­tion and tied the Amer­i­can Ath­letic Con­fer­ence sin­gle-sea­son record.

He will now seek an op­por­tu­nity to play pro­fes­sion­ally.
