ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia freshman Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has
been cleared by the NCAA compliance office for the 2011-12 season.
The NCAA reviewed Caldwell-Pope's status following allegations
he received improper benefits from a person in Columbus associated
with AAU basketball and the local parks and recreation department.
Georgia's compliance office says it was notified by the NCAA on
Tuesday that Caldwell-Pope, from Greenville, Ga., is eligible for
the coming season.
On Aug. 9, the NCAA cleared Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, who
also was named in the Columbus investigation.
