UNLV guard Cody Doolin granted waiver
UNLV needed a consistent point guard for the 2014-15 season -- and San Francisco transfer Cody Doolin is now able to play right away.
UPDATE: The waiver announced on Tuesday was only to get Doolin's senior year of eligibily back. UNLV is still awaiting a decision on whether he will be able to play immediately.
Sources are confident he will be granted a waiver to play immediately since he graduated from San Francisco. "It should be a formality," one source said.
UNLV might have its missing piece for the 2014-15 season.
The Runnin' Rebels were waiting for an NCAA decision regarding San Francisco transfer Cody Doolin, and it was announced on Tuesday that Doolin has received a waiver and can play immediately.
“We are very happy for Cody,” head coach Dave Rice said in a release. “He has a tremendous amount of experience as a point guard and he has become a leader in our program.”
UNLV badly needed a point guard to bring some consistency to the starting lineup -- and Doolin should be able to fill that role. He left San Francisco after just four games last season, but graduated in May. The 6-foot-2 Austin native averaged 13.0 points and 7.0 assists last season, while putting up 12.2 points and 5.6 assists two seasons ago.
The Runnin' Rebels have plenty of talent on their roster, including three top-25 incoming freshmen in Rashad Vaughn, forward Dwayne Morgan and big man Goodluck Okonoboh -- as well as Oregon transfer Ben Carter. Jelan Kendrick and Christian Wood are among the returnees.
