6-2 LaShay Page, who is planning to transfer to USC from Southern Miss, expects to learn Friday if the SEC has approved a waiver request that would allow Page to play this season with the Gamecocks. Page based his appeal on the fact his mother died earlier this year and he has a young daughter living in Marion.
"I think it'll rule in my favor," Page said.
USC is also awaiting the NCAA Clearinghouse approval on guards Tariq Phillip and Thaddeus Hall of New York City.
Phillip said Thursday night he is expecting to hear something on his status early next week and he was confident he will be approved.
