    Will he be eligible immediately?

      I am wondering the same thing. Normally, no. However, maybe with having a young child, he could apply for a hardship, get the waiver and become eligible. That would be pretty awesome if he could play right away.

      If they can make up some excuse like so many others did and the NCAA approves it. He needs to say, other than family reasons, a former teammate or coach called him names, made fun of his religion etc. NCAA has no rhyme or reason as to who they allow to play right away or sit a year. Maybe they flip a coin or, like I think, go by what schools make them the most money. They seem to approve any transfer to OSU, Miami, Oklahoma etc. yet some kids that had tremendous family or health reasons at smaller schools got denied.

    The people who griped at Matt Jones a few months ago when this was initially reported owe him an apology.

      Matt, like a lot of other people out there who report rumors, gets info from good sources. And then the kids change their mind. It happens. Yet when it does, people act like Matt made everything up to get clicks.

    Welcome aboard big man!!! I wanted this dude so bad along with Chris Oats. So glad we got both now… feeling like a kid on Christmas Day with our existing roster!!! Add in the studs from this years class and the rate the 2020 class is going the future just keeps getting brighter and the trolls are losing their voices.

    Four years to play at UK regardless? I don’t think that’s accurate. You get 5 years to play 4. So, even if you count last year as a redshirt year, he would have to be in school 6 years to get 4 in unless he is eligible immediately at UK.

      Yep. 1 on the sidelines and 3 years to play, if he isnt granted immediate playing time. Emmert is still in charge, so dont count on him playing immediately

    If he gets immediate eligibility our front 7 will be crazy deep.
