Ryan Boatright Cleared By NCAA, Eligible To Play Immediately

Connecticut freshman guard Ryan Boatright, who missed the previous two weeks due to further questions about his eligibility by the NCAA has been reinstated and will be available to play tomorrow when the Huskies face Notre Dame. Boatright and his mother were shown to have received impermissible benefits totaling $8,000 from at least two individuals linked to non-scholastic basketball both before and after his time at Connecticut.

The NCAA Committee on Infractions gave Boatright limited immunity and the option to pay back $4,500 to a charity in exchange for his cooperation and information regarding the men accused of giving him and his mother the extra benefits. Boatright had previously been suspended once for the same infractions in November while the NCAA investigated claims that he'd received impermissible benefits. With additional information, the NCAA reached a decision and with Boatright's willingness to provide information about the men providing the benefits and to repay a portion of the money to charity, he was granted limited immunity and reinstated.
