Counter Logic Gaming’s Choi “Huhi” Jae-hyun announced on Twitter that he is now a permanent resident of the United States.

Huhi, a League of Legends veteran, has been with CLG since May of 2015. Because of the NA LCS rule book, teams are only allowed to have two imported players on their roster at the same time. Prior to his announcement, he was one of two players on the team that fell under that rule (the other being Kim “Reignover” Yeu-jin). Huhi’s permanent residency means that CLG is free to pursue another imported player if they so choose.

According to ESPN’s Jacob Wolf, Huhi is a part of history. Wolf reports that Huhi is the second League of Legends Championship Series player to acquire permanent resident status. The first being Diego “Quas” Ruiz in May of 2015.

Harris Peskin, an Esports Attorney at ESG Law, played a big role in acquiring the EB1A visa and tweeted the following:

Peskin also followed up and said that the residency status won’t change until the weekend ends as rosters had been previously set.
