After tearing his ACL in the offseason, redshirt sophomore forward Aaron Ross was expected to be cleared in January for Big 12 play.
However, his return could come as soon as Sunday’s home game against Prairie View A&M.
“He’s doing good,” coach Tubby Smith said. “Hopefully we can get him some playing time, a few minutes here and there, to see how he responds in a real game. He’s ready to test that knee in an official game. We’ll see how he progresses up until Sunday. The doctors have given him the clearance to play right away.”
