Three Bruins get an extra year

March, 11, 2011
Three UCLA players have been granted a substitute season of eligibility due to injuries suffered in 2010, according to a press release from the school.

The waivers were granted by the Pac-10 Faculty Athletic Representatives Committee to defensive end Iuta Tepa, linebacker Jarad Koster and cornerback Anthony Jefferson.

Tepa played in only the first three games prior to his season-ending shoulder injury. He will again be a sophomore for the 2011 season. Koster played in the first three games prior to his shoulder injury. He will be a second-year freshman in 2011. Jefferson played in just three games before breaking his ankle during the California game and will also be a second-year freshman in 2011.

In order to qualify for the substitute year of eligibility for medical reasons, a player cannot have appeared in more than four games during the first half of the schedule and the injury must sideline the player for the remainder of the season.
