Lacy Westbrook hospitalized with reported aneurysm

The mother of UCLA offensive lineman signee Lacy Westbrook wrote on Facebook that her son suffered a brain aneurysm while jogging at Gahr High School on Tuesday but that he was responsive and able to move. He is being held at UC Irvine Medical Center, she wrote.

Westbrook, the No. 18-rated guard from Compton Dominguez, is set to grayshirt this season.

Attempts to reach the family were unsuccessful, but UCLA head coach Jim Mora has been in contact with the family, saying: “I have talked with the family and they have indicated that Lacy is in good spirits. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the young man and his family as they confront this difficult situation.”

    I sure hope this kid is fine and has a full recovery, but this might be another medical retirement coming. Cane we be anymore cursed at the OL spot?

  • Yup, corrected

  • Get well Lacy, my thoughts and prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.

    Glad to hear he’s mostly ok. I wish him all the best and hope he recovers!

    In a terribly perverse sense, it’s almost better to have it happen this year vs. having this problem manifest at some later point. As is, he’ll have a year or two to fully recover before it eats into his possible playing career, assuming he comes back from this.

    Good luck Lacy! We’re all pulling for you!

    Thank God he’s alive! I could care less about his playing career with his health at stake. Get well soon Lacy!

  • Coach Thom

    The thoughts and prayers of the entire Bruin family are with you, Lacy. Get well!

  • BruinRogue
