LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Sophomore defensive end Tyree Wilson has been granted an NCAA waiver that makes the former Texas A&M transfer immediately eligible to play for Texas Tech.
Texas Tech announced the waiver Wednesday, four days after its season-opening win over Houston Baptist. Wilson will have three seasons of eligibility remaining at the Big 12 school.
The 6-foot-6, 280-pound Wilson played 12 games as a redshirt freshman for Texas A&M last season, when he had 12 tackles. He entered the transfer portal last spring, and got to Lubbock midway through preseason camp last month.
