NOV 09, 2012 12:20p ET
The school says it was notified by the NCAA on Thursday that Oraby is eligible immediately. The 7-foot-2 center from Egypt transferred to USC in September after playing two seasons at Rice. He averaged 6.0 points and 3.6 rebounds for the Owls last season, and had a school single-season record of 54 blocked shots.
The Trojans host Coppin State on Friday night.
