UCLA linebacker Mique Juarez could be on track to return to the field soon, by the looks of a recent Instagram post from the freshman.

Juarez has not participated in any football activities since last August when he took a sudden leave of absence due to personal reasons. During that time, he attended classes and remained steadfast in saying that he wanted to return to the team in the future when the time was right. He remained in contact with the coaching staff during his absence with the intention of continuing his football career at UCLA.

UCLA starts winter quarter classes on Jan. 9 with offseason workouts scheduled before spring camp.
