Moore Granted Transfer Waiver

Moore Granted Transfer Waiver

Senior forward J.J. Moore will be immediately eligible to play for Rutgers after receiving his transfer waiver Thursday morning from the NCAA. Moore applied for a waiver for family reasons after transferring from Pittsburgh this summer.

Rutgers basketball got a major boost Thursday when the NCAA ruled transfer J.J. Moore eligible for the 2013-14 season.

Moore applied for a hardship waiver after leaving Pittsburgh in the offseason and received news that he could play today.

"The NCAA has granted a legislative relief waiver for senior J.J. Moore to be able to compete immediate for [Rutgers] in 2013-14," Rutgers said in a statement.

Moore joined the Scarlet Knights in the summer, and played in the Jersey Shore Basketball League, but was not cleared for in-season action until this week. Moore averaged eight points and three rebounds per game with Pittsburgh last season. He projects as a starter in Eddie Jordan's first year running the Rutgers program.
