A handful of months after leaving UCLA, Aaron Wallace is back with the Bruins.
Citing a person close to the program, the Los Angeles Times reported earlier in the week that Wallace has been readmitted to school and is set to rejoin his football teammates. Academic issues prompted the linebacker to leave the university after the winter quarter.
With his academic house in order, Wallace will add some needed depth to the linebacking corps.
in 2013, Wallace’s first and only start of the year came in the season opener. He was subsequently replaced in the starting lineup by (eventual) two-way star Myles Jack. The rising redshirt junior did play in all 13 games for the Bruins.
Coming out of high school in San Diego, Wallace was a three-star member of UCLA’s 2011 recruiting class.
Counting the 2014 season, Wallace will have two years of eligibility remaining. After redshirting as a true freshman, Wallace played in 10 games in 2012.
