Tennessee incoming freshman point guard Wes Washpun has been cleared academically, new coach Cuonzo Martin confirmed Monday night.
Washpun, one of five players in the Class of 2011, was enrolled and attending classes at UT last Thursday while awaiting word on his final NCAA certification.
"Anytime you sign a big class there's always a chance a transcript can get held up, but we were confident all of our guys would qualify,'' Martin said. "Quinton (Chievous) and Josh (Richardson) were here all summer, and Dwight (Miller) came the second term of summer school, so those guys have had a chance to get acclimated to the campus and be around the staff and the players.
"Wes and Yemi (Makanjuola) were completing their academic requirements at home this summer.''
Martin plans to begin meeting with the players on Wednesday, with the first day of fall individual drills scheduled for Friday.
