LAFAYETTE, La. - Louisiana freshman cornerback Simeon Thomas (Miami, Fla./Carol City) will be in uniform this weekend when the Cajuns play at Akron after the NCAA approved a waiver making him eligible to compete.
Thomas, who was ranked as one of the top 20 players last year in Miami-Dade County, sat out the first three games while the NCAA Clearinghouse was evaluating his case.
"I am happy for Simeon," head coach Mark Hudspeth said. "The last couple of weeks have been hard for him because of the uncertainty, so now he can move forward and get on with his freshman season."
A three-star recruit, he was ranked No. 40 at his position by Scout.com.
