Former five-star DT Eddie Vanderdoes, who signed with Notre Dame in February, but instead opted to enroll at UCLA, has been cleared to play this fall for the Bruins, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com Tuesday night.
Notre Dame would not release the 6-3, 310-pounder from his National Letter of Intent for what it deemed "integrity" purposes. Because the Fighting Irish had refused to release Vanderdoes, he would've had to sit out the 2013 season and would lose a season of eligibility, had he not won an appeal. He now will have five years to play four seasons as opposed to having only four years to play three seasons in college.
Vanderdoes, ranked by 247Sports as the nation's No. 1 defensive tackle, is expected to make an immediate impact on the Bruins defensive line.
