Oregon Star Dylan Ennis Receives Waiver To Play For Ducks In 2016-17

Dylan Ennis is coming back to Oregon for another season. 

The Ducks' star guard has received a waiver from the NCAA that allows him to play for the team in 2016-17. The waiver gives Ennis a sixth year of collegiate eligibility. 

Ennis played just two games for Oregon in 2015-16, suffering a major foot injury. He originally played at Rice, transferred to Villanova, sat out a season per NCAA rules, played two seasons for the Wildcats and then transferred into the Ducks' program. 

He announced the news on Instagram.

Oregon should be a top 10 team heading into the 2016-17 season. The Ducks, a No. 1 seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, should be Final Four contenders once again.
