Josh Smith cleared to play immediately at Georgetown

The NCAA has granted UCLA transfer Josh Smith a waiver to play immediately at Georgetown, and the former McDonald's All-American will have two seasons of eligibility remaining despite the fact that he's already participated in three years of basketball. Georgetown announced the decision Wednesday.
