The NCAA has agreed to reinstate two Indiana freshmen basketball players after they serve nine-game suspensions and repay a portion of the impermissible benefits they received before arriving on campus.

Hanner Mosquera-Perea must pay back $1,590 to a charity of his choice. Jurkin will be required to repay $250 to a charity of his choice. Both players will miss the first nine games of this season, beginning Friday night against Bryant.

NCAA officials determined that Jurkin and Perea accepted approximately $6,000 and $8,000, respectively, in impermissible benefits from an Indiana University booster while they were in high school. The benefits included plane tickets, meals, housing, a laptop, cellphone and clothing.

Indiana is ranked No. 1 in the preseason Top 25.
