Good news for the Bulls as USF senior running back Moise Plancher, the team’s leading rusher in 2009 has received a sixth-year of eligibility from the NCAA on Wednesday afternoon.

Plancher led all Bulls' backs in 2009 with 581 yards, and after the season USF applied for a medical hardship waiver for Plancher after he missed time in the fall of 2005 with an injury that required a shoulder reconstruction.

"I am very excited about this upcoming year and I am going to do my best to help this team achieve its goal of a BIG EAST Championship."

Plancher has 946 career rushing yards and 11 touchdowns in his USF career. He was the main back for most of the 2009 season, and had 322 yards as a junior in 2008.

"I have a list of people I want to thank, but at the top of the list has to be (USF Assistant AD for Compliance) Rick Stumpf and (head trainer) Steve Walz for working so hard to get all of my paperwork submitted," said Plancher. "I have to thank the NCAA for granting me another year and the whole USF family for showing support and believing in me.”

Plancher will compete for carries at the running back position with the six other scholarship backs on roster, Bradley Battles, Richard Kelly, Lindsey Lamar, Demetris Murray, Aston Samuels and Jamar Taylor. USF also had three signees expected to join the team - Marcus Shaw, Michael Hayes and Tiger Powell this summer.
