    Nice news. Any definitive idea on when he will be eligible to play? I did a quick search, but didn't turn up anything

    He will be eligible Jan of next year. I believe he can also practice with the team immediately which is a bonus as well.

    Good - the team was really looking thin up till this point.

    Certainly, any physical body taller than 6'5" will help next year's team, but really a physical big would help more than a likely 3 or perhaps combo forward.

    Sweet. Murphy will play the four for us like his brother. His shot isn't nearly as good as Erik's, but he is long, athletic, and isn't a terrible shooter by any stretch (he got very few opportunities to take shots at Duke).

    Jan 2015 or Dec 2014, i.e. after the 1st semester is over? Much like Chris Walker this year.

    Great news that he won't have to sit all of next year. I kind of assumed that would be the case, but was hesitant to make an ass out of myself.

    I ask this half jokingly, Do they do half hardship waivers? We're fine without him for the rest of this year, but could sure use him for all of next year.

    He wouldn't he eligible until January of 2015, then would have 1.5 years to play.

    You are right, after final exams I believe.
    ESPN reporting he will apply for a waiver to play immediately. Would be nice, however not sure how they would grant this.
