Northwestern says the NCAA has ruled receiver Kyle Prater eligible for this season after he transferred from Southern California.

The school announced this week that Prater received a waiver from the governing body and will not have to sit out. He will still have three years of eligibility remaining.

A Proviso West product, Prater redshirted as a freshman and had just one catch for 6 yards last year in an injury-plagued season for the Trojans. Northwestern opens Sept. 1 at Syracuse.
