Dallas, Tx – Southlake Carroll (Tx) quarterback Daxx Garman has been ruled ineligible by the Texas UIL. He will appeal the decision.

Dallas, Tx – Southlake Carroll (Tx) quarterback Daxx Garman has been ruled ineligible by the Texas UIL.

The Scout.com 3-star quarterback's eligibility was questioned earlier in the week after a WFAA-TV (ABC) investigation raised questions about whether Garman moved to Southlake this year from outside Oklahoma City for athletic purposes - which is against UIL regulations.

An Arizona commitment, Garman will appeal the decision by the UIL, but cannot play until the appeal has been processed.

As a junior quarterback last year at Jones High School in Oklahoma, Garman threw for 2,107 yards and 23 touchdowns. But, the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association ruled that Garman didn't live in Jones, and the high school had to forfeit it's six district games and district title. Oklahoma rules also indicate that the student who participated while ineligible is required to sit out at least an equal amount of participation in the coming year. Playing his senior season in Oklahoma was out of the question.

The Garman family rented a home in Southlake, Texas this spring hoping that they could meet all the requirements set forth by the Texas UIL as far as eligibility. After being ruled okay to play in the spring, participating in all spring practices and summer 7-on-7, Garman was ruled ineligible today, the day of Dragons first game.

A special UIL distict meeting was called earlier in the week after the WFAA investigation found that Garman's family allegedly had no intentions of making a full move to Texas.

For more information on Garman's eligibility, you can read the WFAA-TV story.
