Jefferson, Tepa, Koster granted medical redshirts


Three UCLA football players have been granted a substitute season of eligibility due to injuries suffered during the 2010 season. The waivers were granted by the Pac-10 Conference Faculty Athletic Representatives Committee.

Defensive end Iuta Tepa played in only the first three games prior to his season-ending shoulder injury. He will again be a sophomore for the 2011 season.

Linebacker Jarad Koster played in the first three games prior to his shoulder injury. He will be a second-year freshman in 2011.

Cornerback Anthony Jefferson played in just three games before breaking his ankle during the California game and will also be a second-year freshman in 2011.

In order to qualify for the substitute year of eligibility for medical reasons, a player cannot have appeared in more than four games during the first half of the schedule and the injury must sideline the player for the remainder of the season.
