(University of Kansas)

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Silvio De Sousa will play for the Jayhawks in the upcoming season.

The news comes after the Unversity of Kansas filed a formal appeal in the NCAA's decision to declare him ineligible to play for the rest of the 2018-19 season.

De Sousa's name surfaced last summer as part of the FBI's investigation into college basketball corruption. His guardian, Fenny Falmagne, was accused of receiving a $2,500 payment from a "university booster of agent" and agreeing to an additional $20,000 payment for directing De Sousa to Kansas.
