I wasn't following this particularly closely, so maybe he was expected to make the roster all along. But I do know that he didn't have a guaranteed contract until yesterday (today?/the day before?). So good news for him. The link shows other Big 12 cuts and non-cuts (such as Aaron Miles not making the Golden State roster). If you go to SBN's Ridiculous Upside blog, you can see a list of all of the young cuts and non-cuts.
