    So basically, this is how it works.

    Once the paperwork is submitted to the NCAA, schools/players find out the results in almost exactly three weeks. As of last night, the paperwork had not been submitted but I'm guessing it will be today or tomorrow. Bolton had to make his decision first.

    For those asking about the basis of the waiver, I simply don't have all of the details. I've heard that it has to do with the issues with the Penn State coaching staff and other players last season but again, nobody has really commented publicly on this.

    My guess though is that we'll know in 3-4 weeks but definitely by the end of June. There seems to be a lot of confidence that he will be eligible next season though.

    Is the confidence shared by both Bolton and the coaching staff? It seems like that must have been a big part of his decision, as well as Iowa State’s decision to pursue him.

    Yeah, until the NCAA officially grants the waiver I am just going to assume he isn’t eligible.

    This kid appears to be worth the risk either way, and I'm guessing that the staff went after him with that in mind. I'm guessing that they feel like he has a good shot, but may have taken him anyway.

    Wait, your telling me that you can’t find clear information about the wrongdoings of a Penn State coaching staff?

    I tend to agree. ISU has a pretty bad record in terms of the NCAA granting any allowances that would let a guy play.

    I know everyone is excited about having Bolton on the floor this year, but the thought of having a kid like this sit a year and mature physically and mentally, under the guidance of a remarkable leader of young men in CSP, and then having three years to play, is very attractive. I'm good either way, but I feel like we're going to get solid contributions from the other guys on the roster and think an extra year of tutelage could make a huge difference. In any event, I'm very excited for a solid Spring recruiting season for CSP and staff. Can't wait to see these guys reap the rewards of their decision and hard work in Ames.

    We never have an Addidas connection to deliver the paperwork.

    Prohm said they were going after an immediately eligible transfer with our final scholarship. He’s confident he will get the waiver.

    If it doesn’t go in his favor, it’s still a good pickup and a chance for some of the other young talented guys to step up.

    I would guess that Prohm must think he has a good case to get the waiver, but at this point it is like double secret probation.

    It's about as reliable as when news of scandals come out from blue bloods and it's 'they're really gonna get it now' and the only thing we hear is some directional D II school gets shut down entirely because a player bought a shirt at Target.

    Tides turned with Kempt.

    Spelling checks out. I’ll take that as a good sign.

    Naz and his medical redshirt went just fine, too.

    That was a pretty cut-and-dried case, though, nothing requiring the judgement that it is going to require for a more general "hardship" as with Kempt and soon with Bolton.

    Hardship seems like it leaves a lot of discretion. The medical ones are pretty formulaic.

    Would anybody else be able to confirm this? It was posted elsewhere that the basis for the waiver is tied to non innappropriate physical contact by penn State coaches with players during basketball activities.
