07:22 AM ET 07.31 | It appears the winding road of five-star DT Eddie Vanderdoes has reached its destination. [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. ... Vanderdoes, ranked by 247Sports as the nation's No. 1 defensive tackle, is expected to make an immediate impact on the Bruins defensive line.

He's no worse off then Eddie Lacy out in Green Bay. He's fine. Looks like all the other DTs.

Green Bay got what they needed - a fatarsed RB who can stop the rush.

K....I gotta ask. What was the grounds for his appeal, and why is he granted the right to play this year?

Only time I can remember NCAA allowing a waiver was for the kid to be close to an ill family member.....what am I missing?

If he sits around a year he will be too fat to play.
