Kansas will admit an NCAA violation and then ask for Silvio De Sousa to be reinstated, a report says

CBS Sports

Kansas is prepared to acknowledge to the NCAA that a violation took place in the recruitment process of sophomore big man Silvio De Sousa so that he can officially be ruled ineligible, with hopes that the NCAA will immediately grant a request to be reinstated, according to Seth Davis of The Athletic.

De Sousa has not played in a game this season for the seventh-ranked Jayhawks after appearing in 20 as a true freshman last season, which included a Final Four run ended at the hands of eventual national champion Villanova.

Kansas announced before the season that it was withholding De Sousa from competition pending an eligibility review after information came to light suggesting De Sousa's guardian was paid $2,500 for De Sousa to take online classes. Testimony from former Adidas consultant T.J. Gassnola in the college basketball federal trial also suggested De Sousa's guardian was paid $60,000 by a booster to attend Maryland, and that he gave De Sousa's guardian $20,000 to repay the booster to allow for De Sousa to commit to Kansas.
