JAM Sheriff is listed on the University of Santo Tomas Tigers roster for UAAP season 79.

Ruled ineligible when he turned 25 on July 21 — UAAP rules state that a player must not be 25 by July 31 — Sheriff got a roster spot back as UST won an appeal, according to a source.

Sheriff’s reinstatement brings the number of players on the Tigers roster to 16 in time for the team’s opening match against Ateneo on Sunday.

It was unclear at posting time how UST established that Sheriff did meet eligibility requirements for the season.
