Old Dominion, NCAA at odds over Trey Freeman's waiver status
The NCAA says it made a decision on Trey Freeman's waiver weeks ago -- Old Dominion says nothing final has been decided.
Trey Freeman had two very good seasons at Campbell, but decided in June that he wanted to transfer closer to where he grew up in Virginia Beach, Va.
As a result, the 6-foot-2 point guard left the Fighting Camels for Old Dominion and new head coach Jeff Jones.
Because Freeman is going closer to home to be closer to his mother, the Monarchs were hoping for a waiver that would enable him to play immediately this season – as opposed to sitting out this season and waiting for the 2014-15 season.
Ed Miller of The Virginian-Pilot looked into the status of Freeman’s request – and Jones said nothing final had been decided. And this is where it gets a little bit interesting – Miller asked the NCAA, and they said a ruling was made weeks ago.
"... The school has been aware of the decision for several weeks," wrote Christopher Radford, associate director of public and media relations. "You might want to double-check with the school."
None of the officials at ODU contacted Wednesday would say whether the school had received a ruling and what the ruling was.
Freeman was named second-team all-Big South last season, averaging 14.4 points and 5.8 assists.
