MISSOULA — After a long waiting period, Montana men's basketball grad transfer Cam Satterwhite was officially cleared by the NCAA to play for the Grizzlies in the 2020-21 season.

Satterwhite announced the news via Twitter on Wednesday. UM confirmed his immediate eligibility to MTN Sports.

"Great news!! Excited to be cleared by the NCAA and move forward with my masters and basketball at Montana!! I want to put everything else behind me and wish NAU well. Thank you everyone that helped me with the process. Go Griz!" Satterwhite wrote on Twitter.

Satterwhite, a grad transfer from Northern Arizona, announced his commitment to transfer to Montana back in April. Satterwhite, who hails from Gilbert, Arizona, spent the first two seasons of his college basketball career at Loyola Chicago. In his sophomore year, the Ramblers were a Cinderella team, advancing all the way to the Final Four as a No. 11 seed.

Satterwhite then transferred to NAU where he redshirted in 2018-19 before suiting up this past season. In his lone season on the court for the Lumberjacks, he averaged 24.3 minutes, nine points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. He shot at a 42.7 percent clip from the field and 38 percent rate from 3-point range.

Satterwhite has been in Missoula working out with the Grizzlies over the summer but was still awaiting clearance from NAU after transferring. Now that he has been cleared to play, he will finish out his college basketball journey with UM this season.

Satterwhite said he was planning to pursue a master's degree in journalism.
