Mississippi State’s Sidney Cleared Academically

STARKVILLE, Miss. – Mississippi State incoming freshman Renardo Sidney has been cleared academically by the NCAA Eligibility Center and on Monday enrolled for fall classes, university officials announced.
Although he isn’t yet eligible to compete, the 6-foot-10, 260-pound forward/center out of Fairfax High School in Los Angeles is allowed to participate in individual and conditioning workouts.
“We are happy to get Renardo academically admitted,” 12th-year Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury said. “But we know this is just the first step. Now, he has to get his amateurism status resolved.”
