Florida reinstates Dunlap following DUI arrest

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - No. 5 Florida has reinstated defensive
end Carlos Dunlap, and coach Urban Meyer says he will play in the
Sugar Bowl.

Dunlap was arrested Dec. 1 and charged with driving under the
influence, a huge distraction days before the Southeastern
Conference championship game.

Dunlap has a court appearance Jan. 10. Nonetheless, Meyer says
he talked with school president Bernie Machen and athletic director
Jeremy Foley, and they agreed to let Dunlap back on the team. He
will play against No. 4 Cincinnati on New Year's Day.

Dunlap has 35 tackles and seven sacks this season. The junior is
expected to leave school early and enter the NFL draft, and could
be a first-round pick in April.
