-- Derrick Coleman didn't practice.
- Micah Kia didn't practice, but Rick Neuheisel said he expects him to be ready by Saturday. Mike Harris got the reps at first-string right tackle.
-- Anthony Barr didn't practice.
-- Christian Ramirez didn't practice, but did some running on the side.
-- Ricky Marvray, who was hampered by a back strain, did practice fully.
Notre Dame transfer wide receiver Shaquelle Evans practiced with the team for the first time. He made an exceptionally good catch on a deep route working with the scout team offense.
Randall Carroll and Marvray seemed to get a good amount of reps.
Kevin Prince had an up an down day. He threw a couple of picks, but also looked sharp for long stretches.
Dalton Hilliard got a good number of reps working as the nickel back, which you can be pretty certain UCLA's defense will utilize quite a bit Saturday against Houston.
There were so many combinations of players shuttling in to the defensive line in Wednesday practice that it's near impossible to know who will get the majority of the snaps at certain positions Saturday. You can probably expect redshirt freshman defensive end Keenan Graham to get an increased amount of snaps and starter Damien Holmes less. True freshman Cassius Marsh, also, could get more snaps. Expect UCLA to use multiple personnel combinations and alignments on the defensive front against Houston.
Good news on offensive lineman Stan Hasiak: He had his appeal granted, will be admitted back into school and enrolled when classes start next week. If Hasiak's appeal hadn't been granted he would have had to leave school. He is still academically ineligible to play this season.
