JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State basketball signee Renardo Sidney has been cleared academically by the NCAA Eligibility Center and has enrolled for fall classes.
The school made that announcement Monday.
The clearance will allow the 6-foot-10 power forward from Fairfax High in Los Angeles to participate in individual and conditioning workouts.
Sidney is still not eligible to compete as the NCAA investigates his amateur status.
Sidney has been under investigation since a Los Angeles Times article citing anonymous sources alleged the Mississippi native and his family were living in million-dollar homes without visible means of support while he played at Fairfax High.
Sidney averaged 23.4 points, 10.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocked shots this past season.
