Redshirt senior Christian Ramirez might have a new position. Again.
On Monday, the 62, 220pound Ramirez practiced on offense at Fback, UCLA's hybrid tight Marcel Reece Black Jersey end position in the pistol formation that requires running, blocking and receiving. Morrell Presley and Damien Thigpen have been working at Fback most of spring.
Coach Rick Neuheisel said he asked Ramirez Monday morning if he Marcel Reece Authentic Jersey was interested in trying the position because he wants to "find a place" for him. Ramirez appeared to have made some headway at safety the first two weeks of spring, which is where he began his college career before switching www.raidersofficialonline.com/45_marcel_reece_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap.html to tailback his sophomore season.
Ramirez, who said he has the option of playing safety in the spring game, said the move might be temporary.
"It's not messing with my emotions," Ramirez said. Maiava, who suffered the injury during Friday scrimmage, is expected to be out 68 weeks.
The junior started 12 games last season and was one of the reasons for UCLA's improved line play. Replacing Maiava on the first team is senior Ryan Taylor, who has shuffled between tackle and guard.
Maiava had already missed most of camp with a shoulder injury, which he suffered on the first day of spring. He said he's particularly disappointed in not getting to playing in Saturday's spring game because he was academically ineligible for the Bruins' bowl game. It is exactly the role Coleman said he like to fill.
Another option to run inside is Jayson Allmond. The 60, 256pound fullback has been switched to tailback for the time being since a fullback is not needed in the pistol offense. He doesn go down after the first hit and even showed a burst when breaking toward the edge, though Neuheisel said Allmond still had a lot of learning to do. raidersofficialonline.com/45_marcel_reece_jersey_authentic_black_limited_cheap For every long touchdown pass, there was a fumbled snap. Completions were as prevalent as stuffed runs and missed assignments.
Afterward, Coach Rick Neuheisel lamented UCLA might not continue working out of the pistol formation as extensively in the fall.
