Jarred Hyder Ruled Eligible For 2020-21
BERKELEY – California men's basketball guard Jarred Hyder was made immediately eligible to play the remainder of the 2020-21 season by the NCAA on Wednesday.
The NCAA Division I Council granted a waiver to allow Division I student-athletes in all sports to compete immediately this year. Hyder, a sophomore transfer from Fresno State, was originally ruled ineligible for the 2020-21 season in November.
"We were disappointed when Jarred's waiver was originally denied, but today's ruling by the NCAA makes that decision moot," said Cal head coach Mark Fox. "This clears the way for him to return to the court and we are thankful he has gained immediate eligibility. It will take some time for Jarred to get in rhythm, but his abilities will be welcomed by our group."
As a freshman at Fresno State in 2019-20, Hyder started 24 of his 26 games played and averaged 9.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 31.9 minutes per game. The San Bernardino, Calif., native posted four 20-point performances for the Bulldogs.
