BYU basketball player Nick Emery will be required to sit out the first nine games of the Cougars' upcoming season, but has been reinstated to the BYU program, according to a decision by the NCAA that was released late Thursday afternoon.

Emery withdrew from school last fall after BYU confirmed the guard had been referred to the NCAA to investigate allegations that he received improper benefits as a student-athlete.

a€œWe are excited to have Nick back with us," said BYU assistant coach Tim LaComb at a recent charity golf event for head coach Dave Rose at the Alpine Country Club. "He has joined us in workouts and is anxious to go forward and be a part of this team.a€

a€œNick is good to go,a€ said LaComb.

The first 10 games on BYUa€™s schedule are among its toughest and include Nevada, Utah, UNLV, San Diego State, Mississippi State, Houston, Illinois State, Utah State and Utah Valley.

This past year, Emery went through a divorce coupled with the allegations of the improper benefits, which led to his withdrawal from school. In his latest public statement on social media, Emery discussed how anxiety and depression have led him to find greater faith in his beliefs and himself.
