The NCAA announced late Friday that Kansas freshman Josh Selby must sit out nine regular season games and repay $5,757.58 in impermissible benefits to the charity of his choice before being allowed to play for the Jayhawks.
Selby's recruitment was filled with red flags.
The 6-foot-2 combo guard committed to Tennessee in 2008, then famously decommitted in the summer of 2009. He was seen driving a Mercedes the week before he committed to Kansas, and Carmelo Anthony's business manager served as an advisor in the latter part of the recruiting process, all of which led to Selby's amateur status being scrutinized by the NCAA.
Now, after a lengthy investigation, there's a ruling.
It suggests Selby will make his debut Dec. 18 against Southern California.
Rivals.com ranked Selby as the top overall prospect nationally in the Class of 2010.
