In brief: Acl

No it does not have i be 100% but at least 75% compared to your other leg would be good.
You can request an isokinetic (cybex) test to determine what your strength level is. If your leg is not strong enough you run the risk of injuring the graft.

In brief: You need to be-

-able to perform cutting, jumping, and start/stop drills under a trainer who is certified and trained in ACL rehab.
You need as close to 100% as you can or better before cleared for contact sports of any kind.
