Connecticut freshman guard Ryan Boatright will be eligible to play Sunday afternoon against Notre Dame, beat writer Kevin Duffy first reported on Saturday.

Boatright has missed the last three games as the NCAA reviewed his eligibility. He was also suspended for the first six games of the season after the NCAA found his former AAU coach, Reggie Rose, had purchased a plane ticket for Boatright.

Sources told Duffy that this investigation was for something different, but was sparked by the same source as the first investigation.

Boatright, a 5-foot-10 product of East Aurora (Ill.), provides an added weapon on the perimeter for Connecticut. The most explosive lineup for the Huskies includes Boatright and starting guards Shabazz Napier and Jeremy Lamb.

Boatright was averaging 10.2 points and 3.1 assists before the suspension.
