UCLA's Wanaah Bail gets his eligibility for 2013-14
The imposing power forward with a name to know will be in a Bruins uni this season.
UCLA has announced that freshman forward Wanaah Bail (what a name!) had his waiver to play this season approved by the NCAA. Bail initially enrolled at Texas Tech in 2012. He left last summer, and instead of having to sit a year, opted to enroll at UCLA for summer classes this year and submitted his request to be immediately eligible.
The NCAA gave the all-clear Tuesday.
“We are grateful that this matter has come to a conclusion and are very happy for Wanaah,” new Bruins coach Steve Alford said in a statement. “I know that Wanaah is excited to get on the floor with his teammates, and we’re all looking forward to him beginning his collegiate career at UCLA this season.”
The 6-foot-9 Bail, a physical power forward, had surgery on his left knee over the summer and is still not back in practice.
UCLA starts its season when so many other teams do, on Nov. 8. It hosts Drexel.
