Breaking news! Dez Wells, who transferred from Xavier to Maryland over the summer, has been cleared to play this season, which yes, means he will play Friday. Wells had an impressive freshman season at Xavier, averaging 9.8 points and 4.9 rebounds a game before the school expelled him for an alleged sexual assault. Wells transferred to Maryland after visiting a number of schools, including Kentucky, but was denied eligibility on October 26th. His appeal being approved before the season starts comes as surprising news to say the least.
Friday’s game just got a little more interesting.
