Texas football got some good news Friday afternoon.
The NCAA has decided to not suspend two Longhorns who accepted a free meal from an agent, according to a statement released by Texas. The university self-reported the violation to the NCAA compliance department on June 6.
The statement reads:
Earlier this summer, Texas reported a situation to the NCAA involving two Longhorn student-athletes receiving a meal from an agent. That situation has been resolved with NCAA staff and the involved student-athletes are immediately eligible for competition.
Not losing players qualifies as good news these days, as Longhorns coach Charlie Strong dismissed four players – running backs Joe Bergeron and Jalen Overstreet, and safeties Josh Turner and Chevoski Collins – and suspended two others – receivers Kendall Sanders and Montrel Meander – in the past two days.
