UCLA linebacker Josh Woods was named second-team all-academic by the Pac-12 on Thursday.

The junior from Upland High has a 3.33 GPA while majoring in sociology. To be eligible for the conference’s all-academic teams, a player has to have a minimum 3.0 GPA while appearing in at least 50 percent of his team’s games. Injuries and illness do not count against the game appearance criteria.

Woods had 30 tackles in seven games with 3.5 tackles for loss and one sack before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury against Oregon.

Offensive lineman Michael Alves, long snapper Johnny Den Bleyker, fullback Giovanni Gentosi, receiver Theo Howard, cornerback Nate Meadors, defensive lineman Marcus Moore, receiver Christian Pabico, quarterback Josh Rosen, tight end Jordan Wilson and linebacker Kenny Young were named honorable mention all-academic.
