UCLA's Tevaga back from suspension after meeting with Neuheisel

UCLA offensive lineman Sonny Tevaga apparently convinced coach Rick Neuheisel that he's had an attitude adjustment.

Suspended last week for a lack of commitment, Tevaga won over Neuheisel during a Tuesday morning meeting and was allowed to rejoin the team. 

"He'll be back at practice today and we'll see where it leads," Neuheisel said.

Neuheisel was never specific about what Tevaga did to earn a suspension. The sophomore began the year as a starter but couldn't hold onto his spot.

"There were just some things in his behavior that I noticed that weren't 100 percent," Neuheisel said. "I wanted him to know that this was an all-or-nothing commitment. You can't expect to have just your feet in the water and be a productive member of the team."
