EUGENE, Ore. – Senior guard Dylan Ennis‘ petition for a sixth-year of eligibility was granted by the NCAA on Thursday.
Officially termed a Fifth-Year Rule Waiver, Ennis was granted a sixth year “based upon the totality of the circumstances and student-athlete well-being,” according to the NCAA.
Ennis appeared in just two games for Oregon in 2015-16 due to a left foot injury. The injury to the foot was initially discovered in the fall, after which Ennis went through surgery and rehabilitation, before returning to action Dec. 29. He played against Western Oregon and Oregon State before re-aggravating the injury.
The Brampton, Ontario, native transferred to Oregon from Villanova as a graduate senior in the summer of 2015. 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.
Ennis is pursuing a graduate degree in conflict and dispute resolution.
