Kim Declared Eligible

Freshman forward Jin Soo Kim was declared eligible for the 2008-09 season by the NCAA Clearinghouse this afternoon. Maryland released the news in a press release moments ago. Kim will begin practicing with the team on Wednesday.

The NCAA Clearinghouse had denied Kim his eligibility late last week, but the decision was not declared final. After receiving more documentation from Maryland regarding online correspondence courses Kim took during the fourth quarter of his final year at South Kent School in Connecticut, the NCAA Clearinghouse changed course.

"The Maryland basketball team is very happy for Jin Soo," Maryland Coach Gary Williams said in the release.

I think this can be potentially big for the Terps this year. We will definitely lack scorers on this team, and if Kim can come in and hit a few 3pts a game, it could be a game changing difference for a few games.

Good to hear. Always helps to have another body to throw into the fray.

One of the biggest problems with the team last year was a lack of consistent 3-point shooting. Hopefully this guy will bring something to the table and he is a better defender than the last 3-point threat we had, Mike Jones.
