Quade Green will not have to wait until the New Year to return to the hardwood.
According to Yahoo’s Pete Thamel, the former Kentucky point guard has received a waiver and will be eligible to play this fall for Washington. Green left UK after the 2018 fall semester. Without the waiver, he would have been forced to wait to play until the 2020 spring semester.
Green is the second UK transfer to receive immediate eligibility. The NCAA informed Jemarl Baker on Thursday that he could play for Arizona in the 2019-20 season.
Mike Hopkins’ Washington squad now has an impressive trio at the start of the season with Green, Jaden McDaniels and Isaiah Stewart.
