FOR REAL -- #FREESKYWALKER actually happening ... for real this time?

********** UPDATED **********

Florida confirms Goodman's report, saying Walker has been cleared and will debut against Mizzou. 

In a statement, coach Billy Donovan said, "We're glad there's a resolution for everyone involved, especially Chris. We appreciate everyone's participation in this process and are ready to move forward."

Walker, a five-star forward expected to bolster UF's frontcourt, added, "I appreciate all the support from UF, coach Donovan and my teammates. I'm looking forward to helping the team any way I can."

Meanwhile, the NCAA released a report on Walker's reinstatement, explaining the 12-game suspension.

According to the NCAA, Walker accepted $270 in benefits and is required to donate the same amount to a charity of his choice.

Walker must also serve 80 hours of community service for "the remaining benefits received."

More to come...

If true, the long nightmare for the 2013 McDonald's All-American would be over. 

According to Goodman, Walker will be (officially) eligible to play on Tuesday (Feb. 4) when No. 3 Florida hosts Missouri in a nationally televised showcase (9 p.m., ESPN). 

The university has yet to confirm Goodman's report or issue any sort of statement

Stay tuned.
