UCLA football: offensive lineman Stanley Hasiak re-instated
UCLA guard Stanley Hasiak, in limbo since the end of the season, has been reinstated to the team and will participate in spring practice.
Hasiak, a freshman, was suspended twice last season and has not been part of the program since December, after numerous on-field and off-field verbal confrontations. This is expected to be Hasiak’s last opportunity, according to sources inside the program who are not authorized to speak publicly.
The Bruins are in need of help on the offensive line. Tackle Xavier Su’a-Filo left for a two-year Mormon mission. Center Kai Maiava was academically ineligible for the EagleBank Bowl. Guard Eddie Williams suffered a fractured left ankle that needed surgery and missed the last seven games.
Hasiak, who is 6 feet 5, 318 pounds, was ranked fourth among offensive guards by Rivals.com as a senior Kapolei (Hi.) High School. His physical condition entering spring practice is unknown, as he has not participated in off-season workouts while attending classes.
