07/08/13 - The Stony Brook University offensive tackle, who thought he was headed into his senior season this fall and last week was named a first-team FCS All-America selection by Sports Network, has been declared ineligible by the NCAA and also ruled ineligible for the NFL's supplemental draft because he's not an underclassman, thus making him a free agent who can sign with any team, sources have told FOX Sports. Which means Bamiro is, by many accounts, the first player to dodge the NFL draft.
It's a quirky development that, sources say, began to formulate in the spring when Bamiro learned from his coaches that a waiver to give him another year of eligibility was going to be denied by the NCAA because Bamiro attended the University of Pittsburgh in 2008. Even though he didn't play football at Pitt, the clock on his eligibility started ticking. The 6-foot-8, 335-pound Bamiro then decided he wanted to play football, so he transferred to Stony Brook, where one of his brothers (David) was once a linebacker, while another (Solomon) played basketball. (Solomon, known as "Bam Bam," is now a member of the Harlem Globetrotters.)
Michael Bamiro sat out the 2009 season with a redshirt designation after transferring. In 2010, he stepped in as the Seawolves' starting right tackle, a position he held for three seasons. Bamiro, a first-team All-Big South selection last season, was expecting to stay there in 2013, only to learn his college career was over and that he wouldn't be subject to the supplemental draft. Teams can now get a player with the skills to be drafted without having to give up a pick to do so. Bamiro will hold a workout for teams this Thursday in Medford, N.J., a source told FOX Sports. "You can't coach his pure size, his hands, the length of his arms," Stony Brook coach Chuck Priore told Newsday in 2011. - Mike Garafolo, FOX Sports
