Former Louisville guard Kevin Ware has been cleared by the NCAA to play immediately for Georgia State after transferring to the school this spring for family reasons.

The school announced Thursday that the NCAA had granted the waiver.

Ware is best known for the inspiration he provided the Cardinals after sustaining a severe leg injury during their run to the national title in 2013. He shot 44.7 percent from the field and 40.5 percent from 3-point range that season as the first guard off the bench.

Ware played nine games last season as a junior before being sidelined by an injury. He is expected to have two years of eligibility remaining at Georgia State.
