From NC State 

RALEIGH – Omer Yurtseven, a freshman center on the NC State men's basketball team, has been certified eligible by the NCAA with conditions for his participation.

Yurtseven will be required to sit out 30 percent of NC State's 2016-17 schedule, a total of the first nine regular season games. In addition, Omer will be required to make repayment of $1,000 to a charity of his choice.
 
"The NCAA conducted a thoughtful analysis of Omer's situation," said NC State Director of Athletics Debbie Yow. "Their staff exhibited considerable concern for fairness and for the welfare of this conscientious young man in their decision."
 
Yurtseven will be eligible to participate in all practices and both NC State exhibition games.
 
"I'm disappointed for Omer," said NC State men's basketball head coach Mark Gottfried. "He has been patient and 100 percent forthright. We will adapt and integrate him in as soon as possible"
