The appeal of Kansas forward Silvio De Sousa to the NCAA has been approved.
In a ruling handed down Friday afternoon, mere hours after a formal Kansas appeal to the NCAA regarding a potential reinstatement, the NCAA said it will reverse its original decision on De Sousa, allowing him to regain eligibility immediately beginning in 2019-2020 after sitting out all of 2018-19.
The original NCAA ruling came in February when it was alleged his guardian had accepted money from an individual deemed a booster and agent by the NCAA. At the time, that ruling made him ineligible for the remainder of the 2018-19 season and the entirety of 2019-20. KU submitted its appeal of the decision on April 18.
