NORMAN, Oklahoma -- The University of Oklahoma has officially reinstated senior corner back Jamell Fleming.

The school made the announcement Friday saying Fleming will return to the Sooner football team.

In February of this year, the team announced that Fleming was not enrolled at OU and that he was leaving the team for personal reasons, although reports later surfaced that the cause was an academic issue.

During the 2010 season, Fleming made 71 tackles and had five interceptions while also earning All-Big 12 honors that year.

Although Fleming led the team in interceptions in 2010, he missed all of spring practice. He is now listed as the backup cornerback behind Gabe Lynn.
