Former Arizona transfer Momo Jones has been cleared to play this season for Iona, sources told CBSSports.com.

There were questions whether Jones would eligible immediately, but the NCAA granted him a hardship waiver.

Jones left Arizona in May, announcing he wanted to move closer to home to be close to his ailing grandmother in Harlem, N.Y. There were rumors that he was planning to transfer to St. John’s, but NCAA regulations prevented it.

Once he chose Iona, questions still surfaced regarding whether he would be eligible to play this season. We received an answer on Thursday.

With Jones in the fold, Iona is clearly the best team in the New York City area heading into the season. Michael Glover is one of the best big men in the country, while Scott Machado ranked third in the nation in assists.

Jones averaged 9.7 points and 2.4 assists for Arizona last season.

I think he also saw a tandem of guards coming in that may have knocked him out of the starting rotation. Looking forward to seeing Turner.

Iona is stacked for a mid-major. Why they're not ranked is beyond me.

Big loss for Arizona, he was a good player, could really break down defenses @jeffwiklander
