Northwest Florida State, a junior college in Niceville, Fla., has admitted former Providence and Oregon basketball player Brandon Austin, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

A Rhode Island grand jury declined to bring charges against Austin and another Providence player, Rodney Bullock, earlier this month after they were alleged to have sexually assaulted a Providence co-ed on campus in November. A disciplinary board suspended Austin and Bullock after a finding of sexual misconduct.

Austin then transferred to Oregon, where he was implicated in a series of alleged sexual assaults after a party on campus last May. Austin and former Oregon players Damyeon Dotson and Dominic Artis were found responsible for sexual misconduct, dismissed from the team and suspended as students.

Austin was set to transfer to Hutchinson Community College in Kansas, but the school did not admit him, according to reports.

Austin, a 6-foot-6 forward from Philadelphia, Pa., will be eligible to play right away.
