UCLA had a solid idea for its starting offensive line, but halfway through training camp, offensive line Hank Fraley made a change. He moved redshirt freshman Michael Alves into the No. 1 unit at right guard, which pushed Andre James to right tackle and put Kenny Lacy and Sunny Odogwu firmly with the second group at left and right tackle, respectively.

Despite some early struggles, Alves has proven to be worth the trouble.

“I’ve been trying my best, do whatever I can to be on the field,” Alves said. “Actually (Fraley) seems pretty impressed with the film. It’s just doing whatever I can to stay on the field.”
