University of Miami center Reggie Johnson was declared ineligible for receicing impermissiable travel benefits.
The school made the announcement prior to Sunday night’s game against intrastate rival Florida State.
A release from the university said Johnson was unaware the benefits, which were provided by a former member of the coaching staff, were impermissible.
The 6-foot-10 Johnson is averaging 10.6 points and 6.9 rebounds per game this season.
The school requested a quick decision by the NCAA on reinstating Johnson’s eligibility.
