Houston transfer Joseph Young has been cleared by the NCAA to play for Oregon this season, according to Andy Katz of ESPN.

Young, a 6-foot-2 guard who was Conference USA's second-highest scorer at 18 points per game last season, will give the top-20-ranked Ducks another perimeter scoring option.

The NCAA approved Young's request for an immediate waiver after his father, former Houston star and director of basketball operations Michael Young, was reassigned on the Cougars' staff. Young still has two seasons of eligibility.

Young is the second high-profile transfer to be approved in consecutive days following Thursday's news that UCLA transfer Josh Smith was eligible to play for Georgetown.

Oregon opens its season against Georgetown at the Armed Forces Classic at Camp Humphreys in Korea on Nov. 8.
