Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa finally got some good news from the NCAA on Friday. His education and career had been in limbo after the organization ruled in February that De Sousa was ineligible this past season and next season. But after the school appealed what it considered overly harsh sanctions , De Sousa was granted a reprieve from the NCAA’s reinstatement committee. He is clear to play next season. “I’m so excited to be able to come back to Kansas,” De Sousa said in a statement. “All those days and nights wondering what would happen — this makes it all worth it.” De Sousa’s long road toward playing for the Jayhawks again came after his name surfaced last summer in an FBI probe into corruption in college basketball. The NCAA found that his guardian, Fenny Falmagne, had received a $2,500 payment from a “university booster and agent” and agreed to an additional $20,000 payment from the same individual and an Adidas employee for securing his commitment to Kansas. Kansas decided to withhold De Sousa from competition just before the start of last season after it learned of new details in the corruption investigation. – press-citizen – Read More
