FAIRFAX, Va. (AP)
Cornelius had been suspended indefinitely while the legal process played out. A related felony charge was dropped.
Cornelius has started 66 games for the Patriots and is the team's second-leading returning scorer. He averaged 9.5 points last season.
In a statement released by the school, Cornelius says he made a mistake, accepts the punishment, supports his team and will ''get ready to make an impact'' when he returns.
He will be eligible to play Dec. 21 against Duquesne.
