This summer Shane Larkin was a member of the Depaul basketball team and even participated in summer practices prior to Depaul's 10 day trip to France. Shortly before the trip, Larkin announced that he was going to transfer due to an undisclosed medical condition.  Larkin's next stop was Miami to play for the Hurricanes and today the school announced that Larkin can play immediately.

Larkin's first game will be against Rutgers tonight at 7 PM.  The game can be viewed on ESPN3.com.

Here's more from Miami's official website...

UM head coach Jim Larranaga intends to play Larkin in tonight's game against Rutgers (7 p.m. at the BankUnited Center). Larkin initially signed and attended summer school at DePaul.  After transferring to UM, he needed an NCAA waiver to play for the Miami Hurricanes in 2011-12.  

The son of Cincinnati Reds legend Barry Larkin, Shane averaged 18.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 3.5 steals per game as a senior at Dr. Phillips High in Orlando.  He ended his high school career with a school record 320 steals and was second in career scoring behind 2010-11 All-SEC selection Chris Warren (Ole Miss).

First year coach Jim Larranaga needs every healthy body he has right now with Reggie Johnson, Julian Gamble, and Bishop Daniels all nursing injuries.  Also, Dequan Jones is sitting out the season due to accepting impermissible benefits, leaving the Miami roster thin.  Larkin should help out and provide some depth in the backcourt.
