Jake Rudock Cleared to Michigan

Iowa graduate transfer quarterback Jake Rudock appears to be good to go in his reported quest to play for Jim Harbaugh at Michigan.

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman is reporting Rudock has received permission from the Big Ten Conference to move from Iowa City to Ann Arbor in order to utilize his final season of eligibility.

Rudock originally had to have Michigan apply for a waiver with the conference to allow his transfer from one Big Ten program to another to gain immediate eligibility, something the league ordinarily does not allow.

If true, Rudock brings a veteran mind and experience to a Michigan quarterback depth chart severely lacking both with junior Shane Morris, redshirt freshman Wilton Speight and true freshman Alex Malzone.

In an up and down season the 6-foot-3, 208-pound Rudock threw for 2,436 yards with 16 touchdowns to just five interceptions a season ago for the Hawkeyes, despite coughing up his starting job.

Michigan hasn't offered comment or confirmation.
