Dez Wells Declared Eligible Immediately For Maryland
Dez Wells has been ruled eligible for the 12-13 season with Maryland.
Wells transfered from Xavier after getting expelled following sexual assault allegations that were dismissed.
Wells was the Atlantic 10 rookie of the year, averaging 9.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game.
“We’re excited for Dez because at the end of the day, the NCAA made the right decision,” Coach Mark Turgeon said in a statement. “Our staff did an incredible job in putting this NCAA waiver appeal together on Dez’s behalf. Dez has been a welcomed addition, a great teammate, and has made a seamless transition in getting acclimated to our campus. This has been a long process for him and his family, and we’re grateful he can put it behind him and focus on being a student-athlete at the University of Maryland.”
