I believe that is correct. As far as I'm aware, sports played in the 2020/2021 school year will not count against NCAA eligibility. If he wants to, and if the coaching staff wants him to, he should be able to play this season and next season.

Using him on the Iowa game twitter post makes me feel a bit optimistic. There's no stopping Garza, but his size would be helpful.
Haven't officially heard anything but from a interview with coach Jeter and the things that Pearson has been tweeting out I would guess he's playing.
Haven't heard anything official, but found a waiver tracker and it had Tamell listed as approved.

When was the last time we had a big who could shoot the 3? We may be in for a treat this year.

Nimari Burnett is leaving Texas Tech. Only played Freshman year at Morgan Park and not sure of his relationship with Irving, but throwing it out there.

Just saw this morning that Freshman Guard Marcus Washington Jr. (the one from Morgan Park who de-committed from Wake Forest and came here) is no longer on the roster.
In 5 games that he played this season, he averaged 25.3 minutes per game and 4.2 ppg.

Interesting. Very quick, good ball handler. But there was something wrong with his shot. Barely drew iron on a FT IIRC. Could have been playing with injury or just got a case of the yips. It happens. Or just not ready for the rigors of D1 academics and sports. We will probaby never know the truth.

Man, that sucks. In the back of my mind I thought we may see a bunch of turnover year to year. Just not this soon.

Looks like it was either a glitch in the system or they just had to update some of his numbers because he's back on the roster now. Apologies for getting everyone worried.
