Humes started 26 games for Toledo last season and averaged 5.7 points and 5.1 rebounds. He transferred from Toledo after the program's scholarships were reduced due to its Academic Progress Rate.

Humes, who compiled a 3.43 grade-point-average in two academic years at Toledo, averaged 10.5 points and 7.5 rebounds in his two games against UIC last season. He will have three years of eligibility with the Flames.

"This is tremendous news," Moore said. "Hayden has been on campus with the rest of our new players since June, and has been a tireless worker. As we indicated to the NCAA during the waiver process, Hayden didn't deserve to have his eligibility affected for something he wasn't a part of, and the committee viewed things the same way. Hayden has a fresh start, and is going to be an outstanding addition to our program. I'm extremely happy for him."
