UCLA football: Stan Hasiak returns to the team

November 12, 2009 |  6:27 pm

UCLA freshman guard Stan Hasiak returned to the team Thursday, but Coach Rick Neuheisel says it is unlikely he will play Saturday at Washington State. He is not expected to travel with the team.

"He's back in good stead and we're excited that he's back," Neuheisel said after Thursday's practice.

Neuheisel had said Hasiak, one of the top players in the Bruins' 2009 recruiting class, would not be with the team indefinitely on Tuesday because he was "dealing with issues."

Hasiak has been involved with numerous reported incidents involving near fights with teammates during live scrimmages. He appeared in the first two games this season, but then missed the next three games. Hasiak also did not suit up against Washington last week and did not travel with the team for a game Oct. 31 against Oregon.

When he was asked whether Hasiak took care of his personal issues, Neuheisel responded, "I would leave it at he’s back and he’s in good graces and I’m excited that he’s back."
