The school announced in February that Fleming was not enrolled at the university, and it was later reported that the cause was an academic issue.
Fleming, who led the team in interceptions in 2010, missed spring practice.
Fleming returns to the team but, according to an updated depth chart on the team website, as well as the official, he will begin fall camp as the backup cornerback behind Gabe Lynn, who replaced him during the spring.
Fleming made 71 tackles in 2010 and intercepted five passes while earning All-Big 12 honors.
