STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State says the NCAA has granted Jean-Paul Olukemi a waiver that will allow the senior to play this season.

The waiver was sought after it was learned that a junior college class he had taken during his final semester of high school would count against his college eligibility.

OSU announced the NCAA decision Wednesday, a day before an exhibition game against Ottawa, Kan., at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
