LSU reinstates Wade after meeting over recruiting questions

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU has decided to reinstate recently suspended basketball coach Will Wade, athletic director Joe Alleva announced Sunday night.

The move came two days after a Wade met with LSU and NCAA officials, during which Alleva said the second-year Tigers coach "answered all questions and denied any wrongdoing in connection with recently reported allegations of irregularities in college basketball recruiting."

LSU was having one of the better seasons in program history under the 36-year-old Wade when he was suspended indefinitely. His punishment came on the heels of a Yahoo report about leaked excerpts of an FBI wiretap that captured Wade speaking with a person convicted funneling illegal payments to the families of college basketball recruits.
