Jarvis Jones in the clear

Terrific news. Score one for the NCAA Committee on Truth and Fairness.
Jarvis Jones has been cleared by the NCAA and SEC and will be eligible to play for Georgia this season, persons familiar with the case confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution this morning.
Jones, a sophomore linebacker from Columbus, was having his eligibility reviewed after a police investigation into alleged corruption within the Columbus parks and recreation department revealed an administrator had provided benefits to him and basketball signee Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in the summer of 2009.
Jones was a first-year enrollee at Southern Cal at the time. He transferred to Georgia last summer and sat out per NCAA transfer rules. The former AJC Super 11 candidate is expected to start at Sam, or strongside outside linebacker, this season.
UGA spokesmen declined comment this morning. Howeverm it confirmed that a statement regarding this case will be released later today.
