Georgia junior receiver A.J. Green must sit out four games as a condition of becoming eligible to play again, according to a decision today by the NCAA student-athlete reinstatement staff.
The university declared the student-athlete ineligible for violations of NCAA agent benefits rules. According to the facts of the case submitted by Georgia, the student-athlete sold his Independence Bowl game jersey to an individual who meets the NCAA definition of an agent.
Green has repaid the $1,000 value of benefits to charity. According to NCAA rules, an agent is any individual who markets or promotes a student-athlete.
