UNC's Kendric Burney cleared by NCAA

One game later than originally expected, Kendric Burney‘s NCAA-imposed suspension has officially been lifted.

The North Carolina cornerback was slapped with a six-game suspension by the NCAA on Sept. 22 for receiving $1,333 in impermissible benefits.  “Unresolved issues” surfaced after Burney served the last of the suspension, and he was held out of a seventh game last Saturday as a precaution.

Today, the school announced that those issues have been successfully hurdled.

According to a press release, the senior has been cleared to play by the NCAA and will make his 2010 debut Saturday against William & Mary.

With Burney’s eligibility cleared up, that leaves four players whose status is undetermined as the NCAA continues its investigation into the UNC football program.

    I wonder who Gary Wichard paid off to get him cleared?
