UNC safety Searcy cleared to play

CHAPEL HILL -- North Carolina senior safety Da'Norris Searcy, one of 12 Tar Heels football players held out of the previous three games, has been cleared to play, the university announced this afternoon.

Searcy was among 13 players held out as the university and the NCAA determined their eligibility status in the midst of an investigation into potential cases of academic misconduct and reports of improper contact with sports agents. One of those thirteen, tailback Shaun Draughn, was cleared to play in time for UNC's second game, against Georgia Tech. The other 11 players remain sidelined as the investigations continue.

Searcy will make his 2010 season debut Saturday against East Carolina.

Yay, he can surely vouch for the others being Good Boys too? Let them play, that is why they were invited to Chapel Hill, not to set on the sidelines worrying about any silly violations. The state needs it's Flagship School to be a playah in the run for the National Championship
