BALTIMORE, July 11 (UPI) -- Former Duke University lacrosse player Collin Finnerty has transferred to Loyola of Maryland.

He was one of the three players indicted but later cleared of false rape charges at a party in the spring of 2006.

"We're going to petition the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility and all indications are he's going to have three years," Loyola Coach Charley Toomey told The Baltimore Sun.

The woman making the accusation was a student at North Carolina Central University and a dancer at a Durham, N.C., strip club.

The other falsely accused players were Reade Seligmann and Dave Evans. Seligmann transferred to Brown, and Evans graduated from Duke.

The incident led to the suspension of the end the school's 2006 season, and the resignation of then-head coach Mike Pressler.

This spring, the North Carolina State bar disciplinary committee announced Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong would be stripped of his law license for his handling of the case. Nifong resigned in June after apologizing.
