Jeremy Hollowell will travel with Indiana and is expected to play Monday in the team’s Big Ten opener at Iowa.
The NCAA accepted a self-reported secondary violation involving Hollowell and immediately reinstated his eligibility, the school announced in a news release Sunday.
The freshman forward had sat the previous three games as the school awaited a resolution of NCAA compliance issues.
IU athletic director Fred Glass issued the following statement on the matter: “Earlier today we were advised by the NCAA that they have accepted our self-reported secondary violation involving Jeremy Hollowell and, consistent with our proposal, immediately reinstated his eligibility. He will travel with the rest of the team to Iowa and be eligible to play in that game and all other games going forward. I would like to thank the NCAA for its assistance and responsiveness, especially during this holiday season when their office is officially closed. I also thank Jeremy Hollowell and his mother Chandra Lockett who raised this issue and have continued to be forthright and forthcoming throughout this matter.
“Finally, I thank our athletic department and men’s basketball staff who worked diligently and professionally to help bring this to a positive conclusion. I am proud of how Indiana University has handled this situation. We will release the details of this matter later this week. Until then we will have no further comment.”
