Arizona Wildcats guard Rawle Alkins has reportedly been cleared for full contact, according to multiple reports.
Alkins is recovering from a broken foot that was suffered back in September. He was initially expected to miss eight to 12 weeks following surgery to repair the broken bone.
He was projected to become a major contributor for the Wildcats after averaging 10.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists last season as a freshman. He figures to be a welcomed addition to the team as the Wildcats have struggled a bit this season after posting a 5-3 record through their first eight games. They began the season as the fifth-ranked team in the country, but fell out of the rankings after dropping three consecutive games in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament.
The Wildcats face a couple of tough opponents this week as they play No. 9 Texas A&M on Tuesday and No. 24 Alabama on Saturday.
