Former Hawkeye Kelly eligible to play for Sycamores

TERRE HAUTE, IN (KWWL)- Former Hawkeye Jake Kelly will be eligible to play basketball this year for the Indiana State Sycamores.

Kelly transferred to Indiana State after his sophomore season with Iowa to be closer to his family.

According to the Sycamore website, the year-in residence requirement will be waived by the NCAA due to 'extraordinary personal circumstances.'

The following statement was released by the NCAA:

The NCAA staff has granted Indiana State University's request to waive the year-in-residence requirement for its men's basketball student-athlete Jake Kelly. Mr. Kelly's previous institution, University of Iowa, was supportive of this waiver request. The waiver, which will allow Mr. Kelly to compete immediately, was granted based on his extraordinary personal circumstances. The chronology of events supported his transfer to a university that will allow him to be closer to his family.

The NCAA has established a waiver process and criteria to address unique situations and extenuating circumstances that are not outlined in our rules. Each situation is reviewed carefully on a case-by-case basis with the interest and well-being of all student-athletes in mind.
