KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Southeastern Conference has cleared Tennessee linebacker Gerald Williams to play this season.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound linebacker from Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., will travel with the Volunteers to play at UCLA on Monday.
Williams signed with the Vols in 2005, but was denied eligibility by the NCAA just before the season began after problems with some of his high school credits.
He played at Hargrave Military Academy prep school during the 2006 season and City College of San Francisco during 2007.
Williams was already cleared by the NCAA and enrolled at Tennessee. SEC rules require extra credits, and Williams had to prove that a math course he recently took met those requirements.
