In high school, Ezzard was a four-star prospect (247Sports Composite) who reported scholarship offers from Georgia, Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State and USC, among others. At Miami, he played in three games with two catches, meaning that the season doesn’t count as a season of eligibility under the new NCAA rules that permit players to play up to four games and still be redshirted.
By ACC rules, Ezzard would have to sit out a season at Tech and lose a season of eligibility, as he is transferring within the conference. That would mean he would sit out the 2019 season and have three seasons remaining. However, by the NCAA’s rules that normally grant Division I athletes five seasons to complete their eligibility, his situation wouldn’t be any different at any other FBS school. He would sit out the 2019 season and then have time for only three seasons before his five-year window closed.
