The NCAA has ruled Oakland forward Isaiah Brock eligible to compete in games this season.

Brock is an army veteran that served two tours of duty. He did not have the grades to make it through the Eligibility Center initially, but once Oakland filed some extra paper work - and once the NCAA’s dismissal of one of our nation’s war heroes went viral - it was only a matter of time before Brock would be cleared.

Brock’s story is pretty amazing, if you are interested. He started out as a 6-foot high schooler, joined the Army, pulled the bodies of soldiers killed in action off the battlefield and brought them home, then left the service as a 6-foot-8, Division I caliber athlete.
