FORMER EAGLES receiver Irving Fryar and his mother have been ordered to pay $615,600 in restitution to five lending institutions that were cheated in a mortgage scam.

Fryar and his mother, Allene McGhee, were convicted in August of applying for multiple mortgage loans in quick succession while using the same property as collateral. Fryar was sentenced in October to five years in prison while his mother got three years of probation.

The restitution order was handed up yesterday by a judge in Mount Holly. The pair will be allowed to make monthly payments.

Fryar was a star at New Jersey's Rancocas Valley High School before making his name as a wide receiver at the University of Nebraska and the NFL. He played for the Eagles for three seasons (1996-98).
