Last week, we told you about Trey Freeman and the situation that he had found himself in at Old Dominion.

The Campbell transfer had applied for a waiver, and while the NCAA had made a ruling on the matter, ODU hadn’t announced whether or not a decision had been made.

Until today.

Freeman, who averaged 14.3 points, 5.8 assists, 3.2 rebounds as a sophomore, had his appeal denied by the NCAA.

“Since the moment we received the denial of Trey’s appeal on Oct. 16, we have been attempting to have the NCAA reconsider its original decision,” said ODU head coach Jeff Jones. “It’s difficult to accept this decision given the seemingly inconsistent decisions made by the NCAA on these kind of matters. We look forward to Trey being in the program for the next three years.”

“I am extremely disappointed by this news, but excited to be part of the ODU program and the opportunity to be close to my family,” said Freeman. “My goal this year, now, is to help the team in whatever way I possibly can.”

Freeman, who went to high school in Virginia Beach, transferred to ODU to be closer to his mother, who is sick.
