UCLA football: Brandon Willis enrolls, hopes for NCAA waiver
The last step in his return was the repayment of a student loan from his previous time at UCLA, according to a person in the program not authorized to speak on the matter.
Willis originally signed to play at North Carolina in 2010. He transferred from North Carolina to UCLA in the summer of 2010, but left UCLA this past spring and enrolled at North Carolina.
UCLA is requesting a waiver from the NCAA that would allow Willis to play this season. Willis can practice with the team while the waiver process is in progress. If it is denied, he will have to sit out another year.
