Pitt’s Peace Ilegomah Cleared by the NCAA

Pitt’s Peace Ilegomah Cleared by the NCAA

As we’re two weeks from the start of the 2017 basketball season, Pitt received some good news today from the NCAA.

Freshman center Peace Ilegomah has been cleared to participate and is eligible immediately. His status was up in the air because of his enrollment in high school and college.

Pitt issued this statement from head coach Kevin Stallings.

“Our compliance team, led by Dustin Gray along with assistant coach Sam Ferry did a tremendous job working with the NCAA to determine Peace’s eligibility status. I commend the efforts of our team here as well as the NCAA in looking out for the student-athlete. Peace is an outstanding young man with a terrific opportunity to grow on and off the court at the University of Pittsburgh.”

The 7-foot native of Nigeria will be someone that Pitt will be counting over the next few years as a presence in the middle both on offense and defense.
