Utah State announced this afternoon that forward Jarred Shaw has been reinstated to the team and will be eligible to play immediately, after being suspended five games for a violation of team rules. The Aggies next game is this Saturday at home against San Jose State.
In mid-December, Utah State was hit with a blow when Shaw was charged on distribution of a controlled substance, with the charge being a second-degree felony. Playing without Shaw, the Aggies managed to go 4-1, but suffered a bad loss against Air Force this past Wednesday in their Mountain West opener.
In a statement released by the school, Utah State head coach Stew Morrill said:
There has been lots of speculation and untrue rumors regarding Jarred. Jarred Shaw is a student-athlete who graduates this spring and who made a mistake. This was his first offense and he has served his penalty by missing five games. We will go forward from here, and our team is certainly excited to have Jarred back.
For the season, Shaw is averaging 16.1 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game.
