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."

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.
