T1 top laner Choi “Zeus” Woo-je will be eligible to play in the LCK as of Jan. 31, according to a report by FOMOS’ Kenzi.

The 16-year-old wonder boy was called up to T1’s main League of Legends roster on Nov. 20 after competing in T1 Academy last year. 

The rising star, who turns 17 on Sunday, Jan. 31, showed promise on the Korean ladder last season, peaking at 1,442 LP and having two accounts in the top five of the challenger division.

Zeus is known for his large champion pool, having played and mastered numerous champions in solo queue. Last season, he favored Sylas, Camille, Renekton, Jayce, and Irelia, but also played Ornn, Maokai, Gnar, and Pantheon. 

With T1 trailing behind in the LCK with a 1-3 series record, Zeus’ lane-orientated approach to the game could just be what the team needs in this early stage of the split.

It’s unclear if Daeny will opt to start Zeus on Jan. 31 against Afreeca Freecs. But with the coach’s willingness to play young and upcoming rookies, like mid laner Lee “Clozer” Ju-hyeon and ADC Lee “Gumayusi” Min-hyeong, it’s certainly a possibility.
