University of Kentucky Basketball, Football, and Recruiting news brought to you in the most ridiculous manner possible.

The NCAA granted another transfer waiver

Yet another college basketball transfer was granted immediate eligibility by the NCAA.

This time it’s Ian Steere, who left the St. John’s program for greener pastures at UNC Wilmington at the immediate conclusion of this past season. On Monday the NCAA decided he is good to play right away for the Seahawks (I Googled it) this fall.

Steere’s path is a rocky one: he started at NC State as a four-star center in the 2018 recruiting class, but then transferred to St. John’s after playing only one game Raleigh. Once he became eligible at St. John’s back in December, Steere played five games and then was suspended indefinitely for the remainder of the season for “failing to meet standards expected from a member of our basketball program.”

This is a completely different scenario than that of Olivier Sarr at Kentucky, but it’s still good news for Sarr’s case as the NCAA has been very lenient with its transfer waivers in both basketball and football in 2020. Sarr’s argument is as good as anyone’s, so it’d be a real kick to the shin if the NCAA goes the other way with his case.

As for when Sarr will learn his fate, your guess is as good as anyone’s.

    At this point, it seems ridiculous we have not gotten an answer.. Cal helps the kids that leave every time and with no ill will…
    My guess if they wait for a decision to be made in college basketball, then if it gets canceled, they say he is eligible.. haha..

    Emmert would crawl across a mile of burning coals to screw Kentucky basketball.

    First of all the corrupt Emmert has purposely put on the Kanter delay for Sarr. Going on three months with others like Juzang getting quick eligibility for being home sick, and other similar,reasons. He has already stalled it long enough to make sure the cupboard is empty of replacements for Sarr. As I have said many times Emmert is only going to let him be eligible if the season is going to be cancelled, because Emmert is an incompetent, incredibly over paid ( nearly $4mill) and vindictive. Hell even proven cheaters like Self, Miller, and Wade would have had him eligible before now.

    Emmert can’t declare him eligible because he can’t spell his last name yet.
