This kid plays in Europe and still has NCAA eligibility?
And this has to do with DeMeo how?

Original post by Chicago noted he was just followed by DeMeo on Twitter. Eligibility may not be an issue because Indiana was possibly pursuing him. This may or may not amount to anything. Letting it play out seems prudent.

Don't know how exactly, except it's the deal he struck with the Club.
Monaco spotted him playing for South Africa at an Adidas Nation camp. He attends class during the day.
DeMeo is following Van Zyl as well as the Club and seems to have FIBA basketball contacts.

I don’t know all the details but players can play pro in Europe but retain NCAA eligibility if they are paid nothing but living expenses. UConn women recently signed two such players, one from Poland who will play next year and one from Croatia, who will come for the 20-21 season.

Hopefully, that's a good sign.
