Travis Ford Confirms Matt Pilgrim Signing

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State basketball coach Travis
Ford says Kentucky transfer Matt Pilgrim has signed a financial aid
agreement to play for the Cowboys.
Pilgrim, a 6-foot-8 forward from Cincinnati, played two seasons
at Hampton, averaging 10.9 points and 5.3 rebounds per game as a
freshman and 7.7 points and 5.2 rebounds per game as a sophomore.
He sat out last season after transferring to Kentucky, but left
that school after coach Billy Gillispie was fired and replaced by
John Calipari.
Ford is a former player at Kentucky.
Oklahoma State officials say Pilgrim will petition the NCAA to
waive a rule that requires players to sit out a season when
transferring between Division I schools. If the waiver is granted,
Pilgrim could play for Oklahoma State next season.
