Former El Paso Andress wide receiver Eddie Sinegal is academically eligible starting in the 2016 spring semester, and will participate in 2016 spring practice Sean Kugler announced on his weekly radio show Wednesday.
Sinegal originally signed with UTEP's class of 2014, and was slated to be a gray-shirt athlete and be eligible for the 2015 season, but was rumored to be academically ineligible after the fall semester of 2014.
One of the most prolific receivers to come out of the storied Andress program, the talented wide out racked up 2,560 yards receiving during his high school career, also scoring 29 touchdowns.
Sinegal garnered back-to-back First Team All-District 1-4A honors in 2012, and 2013, and will be reunited with Ryan Metz who was the quarterback at Andress for Sinegal's junior year when Sinegal racked up 1,288 yards. 13 touchdowns.
Dave Campbell's Texas Football and Texas Insider named Sinegal as a class of 2014 sleeper throughout most of his recruiting process.
Coach Kugler gushed about the prospect of having Sinegal eligible who is a natural play maker, a fluid route runner, and also a willing blocker to add to an already deep wide receiving corps set for 2016.
The Miners resume C-USA play Saturday night in the Sun Bowl with a 5 p.m. kickoff with Florida Atlantic.
