BYU Transfer, Payton Dastrup, Forced to Sit Season

The NCAA has denied OSU’s request and subsequent appeal for the 2018-19 season

According to the Oregonians, Nick Daschel, Payton Dastrup will not be eligible to play for the Oregon State basketball team during the 2018-19 season.

The forward transfer from BYU played two seasons with the Cougars before deciding to transfer. A couple of weeks ago the NCAA denied OSU’s request for immediate eligibility. Oregon State appealed the decision and found out today that their appeal was also rejected.

As Payton Dastrup cannot play this season, more pressure will fall on their young centers/forwards to perform right out of the gate. Dastrup is allowed to continue practicing with the team, but is ineligible to participate in any games this season. Thankfully for Beaver fans, BYU decided not to redshirt Payton Dastrup after his mission service and Dastrup will return as a redshirt junior next season, after sitting out the 2018-19 season.

Oregon State will have a inter-squad scrimmage tonight and then open exhibition play against Montana Tech on Saturday, before the season officially tips-off.
