Oregon Point Guard Dylan Ennis was granted a sixth-year of eligibility by the NCAA

The University of Oregon announced on Thursday that graduate student and basketball guard Dylan Ennis was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. Ennis had petitioned the NCAA for the exception to the normal rule of five years of eligibility because of a foot injury he suffered after having only played two games during the 2015-16 season

Accoring to media release, Ennis was granted the sixth year via a Fifth-Year Rule Waiver, "based upon the totality of the circumstances and student-athlete well-being."

Ennis was attempting to playout his final season of eligibility after having transfered to Oregon from Villinova. He appeared in two games against Western Oregon and Oregon State before aggrivating a previous injury that had kept his sidelined for the start of last season. He averaged 9.9 points per game as the Wildcats won the 2014-15 Big East title and advanced to the NCAA Tournament’s third round.

 According to media release Ennis is pursuing a graduate degree in conflict and dispute resolution.
