COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -South Carolina will have redshirt freshman quarterback Stephen Garcia back for the start of practice.
The school says Garcia will be at practice Friday after being approved for early reinstatement. He had been suspended by the university from all activities until Aug. 15.
The Gamecocks begin preseason practice Friday night.
Garcia was suspended in March after he was ticketed for underage drinking. It was his third run-in with authorities since arriving on campus in January 2007.
Garcia thanked university officials for his chance to continue with the team. His statement said he would not speak to the media until he began playing in real games at South Carolina.
