The NCAA suspended North Carolina State cornerback CJ Wilson for four games, his coach Tom O'Brien said Monday during a news conference, reports CBSSports.com.

Wilson did not play in Saturday's loss to Tennessee and will miss this week’s game at Connecticut but can return Sept. 29 when the Wolfpack visits Miami.

According to O'Brien, Wilson did not pass the required hours in the spring semester, as Wilson dealt with family issues. Wilson had to take 12 credit hours in the spring and pass six, per NCAA rules. Wilson has already graduated and he passed 12 hours in the summer with a 3.5 grade point average. N.C. State gave up 333 yards passing in loss to Tennessee on Saturday without Wilson.
