Baylor expects redshirt junior DE Sam Ukwuachu to be eligible before summer camp begins.
Ukwuachu came over from Boise State as a transfer in June 2013. He sat out that season to satisfy NCAA rules, but was then ruled ineligible last year for reasons never announced. "Ukwuachu is a guy we’re expecting to be back," Bears’ defensive coordinator Phil Bennett said. "We expect him to be eligible in July. That gives us probably five or six guys we can play at end." Ukwuachu was named a Freshman All-American by the Football Writers Association of America for his work in 2012 with Boise State. Jun 7 - 5:00 PM

Former Boise State sophomore DE Sam Ukwuachu will transfer to Baylor.

Ukwuachu was dismissed a couple of weeks ago for a violation of team rules. He tallied 4.5 sacks as a freshman and was expected to earn a starting role in 2013. Ukwuachu chose Baylor over Florida and Utah, and will have to sit out the season due to NCAA regulations. Both teams run a 4-2-5 system.
