Reggie Carter, the redshirt freshman, was slated to start, and now redshirt freshman Shawn Oatis will be the first back-up.
Once school starts, UCLA will have a few more players walk on to the program. Steven Urrutia, the 6-3, 290-pound defensive tackle who was on the squad last season, will return. We've also heard that a defensive end named Thomas Blake, a transfer from UC Davis, will be on the roster. Blake's UC Davis Bio. He looked bigger than 234 pounds when seen at practice.
Another UC Davis transfer, a linebacker named Josh Edwards, is expected to join the team. Edwards, who is 6-0 and 225, had five starts for Davis last season as a sophomore.
