FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -Arkansas running back Broderick Green will not have to sit out a season after transferring from Southern California.
The Arkansas athletic department confirmed Thursday that the NCAA has cleared Green to play. When Green said in November he was leaving USC, he said it was to be with his ailing grandmother in Little Rock. Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino said the school worked with Green's family to request a waiver ``based on his personal circumstances'' and that the NCAA granted it.
Green redshirted at USC in 2007 and played six games last season. He rushed for 168 yards on 32 carries.
Green has three years of eligibility with the Razorbacks and should add depth behind starter Michael Smith.
