COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland athletic department announced the NCAA has approved the request for a legislative release waiver allowing Jonathan Graham to be immediately eligible for competition for the 2013-14 season.
“We’re excited for Jonathan that he is immediately eligible for the upcoming season,” said head coach Mark Turgeon. “Our administration did an outstanding job working diligently on Jonathan’s behalf.”
Graham played in 57 career games (25 starts) over the course of two seasons at Penn State, averaging 2.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 17.2 minutes. The Baltimore, Md. native was a 2010 graduate of Calvert Hall College High School.
Graham’s father, Ernie, averaged 13.6 points in 118 games as a Terrapin from 1977-81. Ernie scored 44 points in a game against NC State on December 20, 1978, a feat that remains the Maryland single-game scoring record.
