Texas OT Harrison cleared to practice

August, 20, 2013
His academic issue with BYU has not been resolved, but after two weeks on the sidelines Texas offensive tackle Desmond Harrison is back on the practice field.

The junior college transfer from Contra Costa (Calif.) College was cleared to participate in practice on Tuesday. Harrison, a 6-foot-8, 310-pound junior, was projected to start at left tackle for Texas this season but hadn't practiced since Aug. 5.

The decision to let him practice comes one day after multiple reports that BYU denied an appeal of its decision to invalidate a credit Harrison received for an independent online study course from the school.
