Heath, who had 62 assists and 27 turnovers in 17 games this past season, will be immediately eligible at his future school, his dad said. NCAA rules require players transferring within Division I to sit out a year, but Stan Heath said waivers previously have been approved for kids whose dads lost their coaching jobs.
