Myles Jack finds out that, yes, he did notch a sack as a true freshman

All-everything linebacker Myles Jack is good at a lot of things, but he wants to be a better pass rusher.

“I feel like things have slowed down,” he said. “I understand the angles, what I need to do in certain situations more with a year under my belt. Watching film this offseason, I understand more what I need to do. Hopefully it’s going to transpire this year. That’s really what I’m working on, to get a sack this year. One at least.

“I didn’t get one last year. I was kind of upset about that.”

Didn’t you sneak one sack in at the end of UCLA’s last season?

“Almost did.”

But Myles, you were credited with one in the Sun Bowl. There it is on the box score: In the third quarter, on 2nd-and-12 at the UCLA 30-yard line, you sacked Mark Leal for eight yards.

“Oh, I did? Oh, OK. I’ll take that.”
