Duke senior forward Amile Jefferson has officially been ruled eligible for the 2016-17 season, per a release from the school.
Jefferson, a 6-foot-9, 225-pound forward, missed the majority of the 2015-16 season with a foot injury. He played in just nine games before going out in early December.
The Philadelphia native received a medical hardship waiver.
