As of late Tuesday, there was still no official word yet on whether five-star incoming freshman defensive end Jonathan Bullard had been cleared to enroll in the Summer B semester, which started Monday.

The deadline to enroll in Summer B was 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.

If Bullard missed the deadline, he will have to wait until August to enroll. If he is cleared to do so by the NCAA and the UF admissions office (which is expected to happen, sources close to the situation have told The Sun). He would miss a month of workouts with his teammates and the first part of preseason practice.

If cleared to enroll for the fall semester, Bullard would be able to start practicing with the team when school starts Aug. 22, meaning he would miss the first two weeks of preseason camp.
