One NCAA clearinghouse situation is now out of the way for Kansas coach Bill Self, as incoming freshman Milton Doyle was cleared to play in this upcoming season, the Chicago Tribune first reported.

Doyle, a 6-4, 185-pound guard from Chicago, Ill., originally committed to Florida International, but reopened his recruitment when head coach Isiah Thomas was fired in April.

According to the Tribune, he averaged 19 points, eight rebounds, five assists, and five steals per game this past season.

Self and the Jayhawks are still waiting for word on the eligibility of another freshman, Anrio Adams, who is working through the clearinghouse.

For Doyle, questions arose about online course he took during a transfer of high schools after his sophomore year.

Kansas had two players ruled ineligible by the NCAA for the 2011-12 season, Ben McLemore and Jamari Traylor, but still managed to reach the Final Four in New Orleans.

McLemore is expected to be an impact player for the Jayhawks this upcoming season and joins a six-man recruiting class for Kansas, which includes Doyle and highly rated Kansas native Perry Ellis.

Self will be without last year’s stars, Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson, for the 2012-13 season, but, remember, he was able to take an underrated team to the national title game this past year.
