Offensive lineman Sonny Tevaga is no longer with the program. I am told it is an academic issue, and he will not be with the team in the fall.
Here is a release from UCLA about other things (including UCLA’s first acknowledgment of E.J. Woods not being with the program any longer):
Safety E.J. Woods and offensive lineman Sonny Tevaga are no longer members of the football team. Woods plans to transfer to a local junior college. Tevaga is exploring his options.
UCLA alumnus Troy Aikman will be throwing out the first pitch at this afternoon’s Padres home game at PetCo Park in San Diego. Aikman is a part-owner of the team.
Concordia College of California will be the men’s basketball team’s first exhibition opponent this season. The Bruins will host Concordia on Wed., Nov. 4. The exhibition game with Humboldt State will now be played on Tues., Nov. 10.
