LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -Kentucky point guard John Wall has been cleared to play by the NCAA.
The school announced Friday that the 6-foot-4 freshman must sit out two games and repay almost $800 in expenses incurred during unofficial visits to schools during his junior year at Word of God Christian Academy.
Wall's status had been up in the air as the NCAA investigated the relationship between Wall and Brian Clifton, his former AAU coach. Clifton was a certified agent for a period during Wall's recruitment, and the NCAA looked into whether Wall accepted any illegal benefits from Clifton during that time.
Wall will miss an exhibition game against Campbellsville on Monday and the season-opener against Morehead State on Nov. 13.
