First there was the return to L.A. for one last summer school class. Then there was the wait for a transcript. Then a wait for a diploma. Then a wait for a signature. Then the five mandatory practices without full pads. The waiting ends officially Tuesday for CU running back Thomas Perez.

Thomas Perez had been in Boulder since July 29, but couldn't practice with the Buffs due to some paperwork issues. After coming to practice Friday in street clothes, the transfer running back from Compton CC was summoned to the athletic department. A few phone calls later, and he was finally cleared to practice. Also inside, some notes from the practice, and a Q&A with Ryan Walters.

About an hour into Wednesday afternoon's session, transfer running back Thomas Perez walked onto the practice field in street clothes with a piece of paper in his hand and a smile on his face. He had received a needed transcript from Compton CC and could practice as soon as Thursday.
