Amir Garrett Cleared To Play For St. John's, Will Play Tonight Against Texas-Pan American

Steve Lavin is excited about finally getting Amir Garrett on board.

The St. John's Red Storm will get some much needed assistance tonight against the Texas-Pan American Broncos (7 pm., TV: ESPN3) as 6-6 forward Amir Garrett has been cleared to play for the team.

St. John's had three incoming players declared ineligible by the NCAA before the season. Garrett was one of those players. The Red Storm also recently lost guard Nurideen Lindsey who decided to transfer.

St. John's head coach Steve Lavin said about Garrett:

"We are pleased to welcome Amir to our Johnnies basketball family. We appreciate his unwavering commitment to the program we are building here at St. John's," said Lavin. "Amir is a person of strong character and an outstanding basketball player. His length, explosiveness, quickness and highly-skilled game make him an ideal fit for our system of play. Amir was the most tenacious competitor that we evaluated in the 2011 recruiting class and his fierce will to win is going to be a critical asset as our team prepares for the BIG EAST conference schedule."
