Former UK big man and summer basketball legend Matt Pilgrim is starting to get acclimated at Oklahoma State after transferring from UK last month. Pilgrim, who also flirted with Memphis and Maryland, says he is “very, very, very confident” that the NCAA will grant him a waiver on his eligibility and allow him to play this season. Travis Ford, however, doesn’t just expect him to play. He expects his rebounding ability and mid-range jumper to allow him to contribute in a pretty major way. Hopefully, the powers that be will allow that to happen. It only seems fair.
***Also, Pilgrim’s description of himself at the beginning of the story is the same way Matt Jones starts out his Facebook IMs.
