    Ineligible Baylor RB Silas Nacita tweeted an apology Thursday morning for breaking NCAA guidelines.

    Baylor announced Wednesday that the formerly homeless walk-on running back was ineligible because of rules violations.

    Thursday, Nacita apologized for breaking NCAA rules, misleading in his previous tweets, and said he should have accepted NCAA-approved guidance offered to him by Baylor.
