NCAA Reverses Decision; Uros Plavsic Immediately Eligible

The University of Tennessee has officially announced that Arizona State transfer Uros Plavsic has won his appeal with the NCAA and is now immediately eligible for competition.

The redshirt freshman from Serbia enrolled at Tennessee back in May but was forced to sit out the first 15 games of the season due to the denial from the NCAA, however, today in a stunning turn of events, the NCAA officially overturned their original ruling.

University of Tennessee Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer commented on the news via a press release, saying, “We appreciate the committee’s work as this process ran its course,” Fulmer went on to state, “We’re thrilled that Uros will receive his opportunity to compete and that he no longer stands to lose a year of his eligibility. Our compliance staff put a great deal of work and persistence into achieving this outcome. This is the right decision.”

The Vols lacked an inside game through the first 15 match-ups of the season, so adding Plavsic at the forward position will obviously serve as a monumental boost for Tennessee. The Vols next game will be at 7:00ET tomorrow against the Georgia Bulldogs in Athens. While it will serve as a huge test for Tennessee, who has had its ups and downs so far, it will serve as an even larger test for Plavsic, who will be playing his first game in the SEC.

This article will be updated as more details regarding this story unfold.

Bat Flip Tennessee Vols Baseball Show – March 24,2021

Ninth-ranked Tennessee jumped on EKU early and cruised to a 13-5 win at Lindsey Nelson Stadium that didn’t do anything to halt the Vols’ momentum heading into a big weekend series against 15th-ranked LSU.

Home runs from junior third baseman Trey Lipscomb and sophomore shortstop Cortland Lawson highlighted a seven-run fifth inning that gave Tennessee a 13-2 cushion and the ability to mix in even more reserves down the stretch.
