Arsalan Kazemi Fitting In Well With Oregon Ducks

Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Rice transfer Arsalan Kazemi is fitting in well at Oregon. He is still waiting for the NCAA to rule on his waiver request to be eligible this season.

When Arsalan Kazemi left Rice to look for a spot on a roster at a major program, there was a lot of skepticism that the Iranian star would fit in.

Appparently things are going well. According to ESPN's Andy Katz, Kazemi has impressed the coaching staff as one of the top players on the floor:

The Ducks coaching staff has found him to be an elite rebounder, the most physical player on the team, and possessing a high basketball IQ. He has picked up the Oregon system quickly.

That is great and all, but Kazemi is still trying to get eligible for the season, and it seems a bit far fetched. I am not sure what could have gone into his waiver request that would get him through the NCAA process.

But when it comes to the NCAA, you never can tell what they are going to approve and deny. It could be that playing in Houston was such a hardship that Kazemi will see the floor this season. Guess we will all have to wait and see.
