Kingma good to go, Johnson still waiting

COUGARS

FROM PULLMAN — Washington State officially confirmed the transfer of Brett Kingma from Oregon to play for the Cougars men's basketball team this season. He's enrolled in classes and is part of the team going forward.

The big news: Kingma, a sought-after guard from Mill Creek, Wash., who held multiple Pac-12 offers as a high-school senior in 2011, will be a walk-on at WSU.

As far as I know, it's unclear if Kingma's walk-on status will matter in regards to the NCAA transfer rule — he should still have to sit out this season, though there has been no official word from WSU in that regard.

WSU is still waiting for the NCAA to rule on the eligibility of freshman Que Johnson, who is in Pullman and is taking classes. A decision is expected relatively soon.
