LSU senior linebacker Michael Divinity has officially been cleared and will play in the national championship, Ed Orgeron said on Tuesday morning.

“Michael Divinity will be back with the team. A final decision was made this morning. So good job breaking it,” Orgeron said to a reporter. “Obviously, Mike has been a tremendous pass rusher for us. I know we’re definitely going to use him. He’ll be back in a role, what he’s doing, and we’ll see what fits best. He’s definitely going to play for us, and we’ll definitely use him in the best situations we can.”

Divinity, one of the Tigers’ top pass rushers, hasn’t played since Oct. 26 (vs. Auburn) due to ‘personal reasons,’ and now gets to return for the biggest game of the season.

Missing nine total games so far, Divinity has recorded 17 solo tackles and 3 sacks this season, and will surely make an impact when he comes in on Jan. 13 in New Orleans.

OT Dare Rosenthal will also be available to play.
