Back in may, former Notre Dame offensive lineman Dan Wenger made his way to Florida to finish out what had been an injury-plagued career at South Bend. At the time of the transfer, Notre Dame medical staff would not clear Wenger to play football following a pair of concussions suffered by the center in 2010.
According to the Miami Herald, however, Wenger has been cleared by Florida medical staff and will be eligible to play immediately with his sixth year of eligibility granted from the NCAA. Wenger was reportedly given the all clear back in June.
Wenger is competing for the starting center job for the Gators, and is reunited with former Irish head coach/offensive coordinator Charlie Weis and offensive line coach Frank Verducci.
