BOZEMAN - When Montana State men's basketball coach Brad Huse signed SMU transfer Eric Norman, he was hoping for immediate help in the front court.Now he has it as the NCAA recently granted Norman immediate eligibility with the Bobcats.
Norman was allowed relief from the NCAA's transfer rule, which would have required him to miss the 2012-13 season after transferring from one Division I institution to another. "I'm excited for Eric," said MSU coach Brad Huse, "and for our program. We have good depth at our post positions now and Erik brings a lot of skill and some Division I experience to those spots."
Norman, a 6-9 forward originally from San Diego, joins the Bobcat program as a sophomore with three years of eligibility.
