Deville Smith has received a waiver and will be eligible to play for Tennessee-Martin immediately this season, a source confirmed to NBCSports.

Smith spent last season playing for UNLV, where he averaged 9.7 points and started 18 games at the point as a junior. UT-Martin will be his fourth school in four years. As a freshman, he played on the same Mississippi State team as Rodney Hood, Renardo Sidney and Arnett Moultrie before transferring to a junior college for the 2012-2013 season.
