Defensive lineman Ellis McCarthy down to 325 pounds

Former five-star recruit Ellis McCarthy has had surgeries on both knees since arriving at UCLA — prompting him to lose over 20 pounds to alleviate the pain. Defensive line coach Angus McClure said that McCarthy, now a 325-pound nose tackle, looks like he’s in his best of his college career. The junior sophomore had a nice interception on the first day of camp in San Bernardino, tipping a pass before diving to secure the interception.
