Brendan Collier is eligible to play this season for Northeastern after the former Boston University player won an appeal with the NCAA.

Collier, who was cut from the Terriers roster after last season, transferred to Northeastern and sought to avoid having to sit out a season.

The forward tweeted Monday that he was granted immediate eligibility with the Huskies.


A Northeastern spokesperson confirmed Collier can play for the Huskies this season. Collier has three seasons of eligibility remaining.

Collier applied for a legislative relief waiver to eliminate the traditional one-year waiting period after a transfer on the grounds that he was not given a chance to continue to compete for his former school.

He had one goal and three assists in 29 games last season for the Terriers.
