Washington guard Quade Green has been granted a waiver from the NCAA and will be immediately eligible to play for the Huskies, the school announced Friday.

Green played in just nine games for Kentucky last season before transferring to Washington in January.

"We're very excited to have Quade eligible immediately and we'd like to thank the NCAA, the University of Kentucky, and the compliance staffs both here at Washington and at Kentucky," said head coach Mike Hopkins in a statement. "We can't thank them enough for their cooperation and we are very happy for Quade."

Green should immediately step into the starting point guard role and provide an additional boost to a roster that already includes five-star freshmen Isaiah Stewart and Jaden McDaniels.
