Donovan didn't give that response with respect to the "news" that Walker would be cleared.
It was just his usual response to the weekly Chris Walker questions.

"When he's cleared, I will play him. I usually wouldn't play a freshman in that situation."
-Donovan

That may be, but the 2nd tweet is rather straightforward, and Mark Long is pretty connected with UF and not prone to exaggeration.

Goldkamp seems to put a lot of faith in Long's sources and connections, and he's encouraged.

If it doesn't happen as expected this week I guess I'll just have to bump it at a later date.

Oh, I totally understand and really do hope it is true.
But there were people freaking out on another board because they thought Donovan gave a veiled response that HE knew Walker would be cleared.

Mark Long didn't tweet that until AFTER the conference was over.

Yeah, Long could have worded that better. Basically, Long is saying Walker is expected to be cleared this week; and Donovan is saying when that happens he won't be redshirting Walker but playing him immediately.

I sure am glad Walker has been practicing all this time, so he's not behind the 8-ball when he gets his shot... diminishes the adverse effects of the delay a little bit.

I'm just annoyed that it's been taking this long.
At least we've won all the game he would have played in anyway.

Just because the NCAA clears him doesn't mean he should play him. D Rose was cleared too...

For the umpteenth time, Kenny SkyWalker played here in the 80s.  If y'all get a Randall Jordan are you going to call him Air Jordan?

Looks like Mark Long has a little birdie with a nest in the NCAA... officially cleared.

Can play February 4th.
