Junior college transfer Waverly Austin (6-11/C), a transfer from Palm Beach State College, was ruled ineligible to play at USF this season. According to several press releases, some of Austin’s classes from Palm Beach State were not accepted by USF and he was declared academically ineligible by the school. Austin did earn his associate’s degree and is a qualifier according to the NCAA standards for junior college transfers.
Since Austin is eligible to play this season, the next question is where will he go? He has to make a decision quickly because many schools have already started and students can not enroll after a certain date. That decision may have already been made. Multiple sources have told us that Austin is all set to head to Oregon and play for the Ducks during the 2012-13 season. Check back soon for updates.
