Florida Gators freshman Chris Walker has been cleared to play by the NCAA and will make his collegiate debut against Missouri on Tuesday.

The NCAA said in a statement that Walker received preferential treatment from five people -- including two agents. Walker will be required to donate the $270 he received from the agents to a charity, and will also serve 80 hours of community service for the remaining benefits received.

The NCAA also found that Walker, while a prospect, received free cell phones and service, airfare, lodging, meals and apparel. Individuals close to Walker received free airfare and lodging for nine trips -- including eight associated with AAU competitions.
