Tennessee freshman tailback Bryce Brown will not be punished as the result of an NCAA investigation into his eligibility.
The NCAA was reviewing whether money was improperly raised for Brown to visit colleges during his sophomore year of high school.
Coach Lane Kiffin received word during the Volunteers' Wednesday practice that Brown had been cleared.
Kiffin says the NCAA was considering a four-game suspension and a hefty fine as punishment for Brown.
The coach says he talked with the NCAA and Brown wrote a letter to the organization pleading his case.
