KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Tennessee freshman wide receiver Justin Hunter has been cleared by the NCAA to play for the Volunteers.

The team confirmed Hunter’s clearance after coach Derek Dooley announced it on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

The 6-foot-4 Hunter is one of the top prospects in Dooley’s first signing class at Tennessee.

Tennessee coaches and players raved about his performance in fall camp until the NCAA Clearinghouse benched him Aug. 19 to review an online course the Virginia Beach, Va., native took during the summer of 2009.

Hunter spent the summer competing with the USA Track and Field team.
