Northwestern's Ajou cleared by NCAA

  •  

EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - Northwestern says the NCAA has ruled freshman center Chier Ajou, the tallest player in school history, eligible for the upcoming season.

Ajou moved from South Sudan to the U.S. in 2008 and there were reportedly some questions about the early years of his transcript. Those issues were apparently resolved and the school said Thursday he was cleared to play by the governing body.

The 7-foot-2,Ajou played two years for Culver (Ind.) Academies before attending prep school last year at St. Thomas More School in Connecticut.

His cousin is Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls.
