Former Nole Daniel Glauser to sue NCAA


Miami Herald Writer

Former Florida State offensive lineman Daniel Glauser is preparing to sue the NCAA for his final year of eligibility.

A Swiss-born player, Glauser was a standout in the junior college ranks, playing two years for New Mexico Military Institute before accepting a scholarship to play at Florida State in December 2011.

The 2012 season would have been his junior year if not for NCAA rules, which dictated he get just one year with the Seminoles.

Glauser was denied a fourth year of eligibility as a result of playing in two club football games in Switzerland as a 21-year-old.

The 6-5 offensive tackle paid the equivalent of $600 to participate in the club league, but the NCAA considers participating in those two games to be the equivalent of participating in one year’s worth of collegiate athletics.

Glauser played in eight games last season — starting in two of them — and would add depth to a Florida State offensive line that is young and inexperienced behind its starters. On Thursday morning, he met with FSU compliance officials. Glauser is currently on scholarship finishing his degree in business management.
