Wow! Gilchrist Eligible in December at South Florida
Wow. Simply wow. Gus Gilcrhist somehow got a waiver to become eligible at midseason for South Florida. Have to say, I thought there was no chance this would happen for the well-traveled Gilchrist.
The short story:
In high school, Gilchrist transferred from Friendly to Progressive Christian for his senior year but ended up being home schooled because the NCAA Clearinghouse had yet to recognize Progressive. He signed with Virginia Tech, but opted out of that, was not in school for the first semester of last school year, then enrolled at Maryland. After one semester at Maryland, after having multiple appeals denied to not lose any eligibility for signing with Virginia Tech and then going to Maryland, Gilchrist left College Park and transferred to South Florida.
Normally, transfers must sit out a full season of competition and lose one year of eligibility, but South Florida appealed to the NCAA on Gilchrist's behalf.
