North Carolina senior receiver Dwight Jones has been reinstated by the NCAA and will play in the Independence Bowl, according to a school spokesman.

Jones was declared ineligible by the university after it learned that he allowed his name and picture to be used on a flier promoting a party.

Jones caught 79 passes for 1,119 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. His reinstatement means that the Tar Heels don’t have to depend on true freshman kick returner T.J. Thorpe.
