NCAA cleared freshman running back D'Onta Foreman

The Texas Longhorns have cleared out some bad eggs under new head coach Charlie Strong. The new coach dismissed both Jalen Overstreet and Joe Bergeron from the team, leaving just Johnathan Gray and Malcolm Brown on the roster from last season.

That had the Longhorns dealing with a bit of depth issues at the running back position, but they got some relief when the NCAA cleared freshman running back D’Onta Foreman. There were some issues with Foreman academically, but those seemed to be resolved.

From Horns 247:

Texas running back signee D’Onta Foreman was just cleared by the NCAA. Foreman submitted his transcripts to Texas and the NCAA on Monday afternoon and the NCAA just now got back with the University of Texas that Foreman has indeed been cleared.

The former Texas City prospect had to attend summer school to earn one credit in order to be eligible. He completed that class with an ‘A’ average, which got him accepted both into Texas and cleared by the NCAA.

Horns 247 also report that he will move in this weekend and join the team right away. Foreman’s twin brother is also on the team as a wide receiver.

Foreman was an All-American and put up an eye-popping 1,893 yards and 26 touchdowns in his senior season.
