247 Sports

The NCAA has announced its ruling with regard to KU basketball Silvio De Sousa. 

De Sousa, the NCAA announced, will be required to sit out the rest of the 2018-19 season and for the entirety of the 2019-20 season "because his guardian received payment from a university booster and agent and agreed to receive additional funds from the same person." 

From the NCAA's release: "According to the facts provided for purposes of the reinstatement request, De Sousa’s guardian received payment of $2,500 from an agent and booster of the school. He agreed to accept additional payment of $20,000 from the same individual and an Adidas employee for securing De Sousa’s enrollment at Kansas."

The announcement did note that any prospective student-athlete is responsible for the actions of any third parties involved in their recruiting process, meaning even if De Sousa was not directly aware of the actions taking place, he still can be punished for any perceived wrongdoing.
