BREAKING: Xavier Peters has been CLEARED by the NCAA

Kentucky pass-rusher and Florida State transfer Xavier Peters has officially been CLEARED by the NCAA.

Peters announced on Twitter that he received the news this evening.

“I just want to thank God for getting me CLEARED,” he wrote in a tweet. “Also I want to thank the NCAA for understanding my situation about me coming closer to my son. I’m going to bring the energy and the passion to this team. Can’t wait to be on that field Saturday night! Go Cats!! Love my fans.”

“I’m so excited,” Peters said in a release from UK. “I was hoping this would happen because all of this has been for my son. He’s my life. I can’t wait to get out there with my team on Saturdays. I want to thank the NCAA and everyone at Kentucky who helped make this happen.”

“We’re excited to have Xavier available to play this season,” Mark Stoops added. “I appreciate the NCAA understanding Xavier’s situation. I also want to thank our compliance office for the great job they did with the appeal and for Xavier’s patience with the process.”

Peters, a former four-star prospect out of West Chester, OH, transferred to Kentucky back in May. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound linebacker originally signed with Florida State out of high school. He will have four seasons of eligibility remaining.

      I’m not sure that’s the general consensus after losing our starting quarterback for the season…

      The quarterback change is going to work out. It will show up in the passing game. We have enough rushing to absorb it, and teams tend to rally around a fallen leader.

    How much playing time do y’all think XP will get this weekend? Coach Stoops isn’t the type to have him leap frog over the current starters.

    I was sure they were waiting to after the UF game. I guess the injury yo Wilson gave them enough confidence in FL to let him play.
