NCAA clears Kevin Ware, will join team in December

Great for the kid, great for the team.

Here's the release from U of L:

Kevin Ware, a 6-4 guard from Conyers, Ga., has met NCAA intial eligibility requirements and will join the University of Louisville men's basketball team in mid-December.

Ware, who signed a financial aid agreement with the Cardinals in June, was denied a waiver and subsequent appeal for admittance in early September. He continued to work on improving his standing and will enroll for the 2012 spring semester. He will join the Cardinals on Dec. 14, the day after U of L's fall semester final examinations.

A first-team all-state selection as a senior last season, Ware averaged 13.2 points, 4.1 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 2.2 steals in helping Rockdale County High School post a 26-6 record and finish as the Georgia 4-A state runner-up.
