Milton Doyle: NCAA Clears Kansas Freshman to Play this Season

Kansas and head coach Bill Self received some good news from the NCAA Clearinghouse over the weekend as incoming freshman Milton Doyle has been cleared to play this upcoming season.

The 6-foot-4 Chicago-native was awaiting clearance while the NCAA investigated his credits from high school. Doyle has been enrolled in summer school at Kansas.

For Self and the Jayhawks, the news is good, especially given the unfortunate circumstances surrounding three of their incoming freshmen entering last season. In the fall of 2011, star freshman Ben McLemore was among three freshmen ruled ineligible prior to the season. He is set on being a key component for the Jayhawks’ squad in 2012-13.

As for Doyle, a former Florida International commit, the news comes at an opportune time, relieving the stress of awaiting a NCAA ruling.

After averaging 19 points, seven rebounds and five assists as a senior, Doyle was set on being what former FIU head coach Isaiah Thomas called a “program changer.” However, the school’s decision to fire Thomas, ultimately led to Doyle re-opening his recruitment. Kansas eventually won the combo guard’s service.

After falling to Kentucky in the national championship this past spring, the Jayhawks appear ready to move forward in 2012-13 and once again threaten near the top of the Big 12 conference.

Alongside Doyle, incoming freshman Andrew White, Zach Peters, Landen Lucas, and Perry Ellis make up the remainder of the Jayhawks’ 2012 recruiting class.
