Quarterback Brett Hundley says he is ready . . . no matter what UCLA Coach Rick Neuheisel decides to do with him. Richard Brehaut was named the starter for this week's game at Oregon State, and received a large chunk of preparation time Tuesday. But Hundley, a freshman, has also seen his workload increase, leaving open the question: Will he or won't he? Neuheisel is weighing whether to have Hundley redshirt this year. UCLA is 1-2, and whether Neuheisel will be back for his fifth year has been left undecided by Athletic Director Dan Guerrero . But Neuheisel takes himself out that equation, saying, "Every decision I make not only has to be what's best for our team, but what's best for the individual.

Wanaah Bail recalls the first time he picked up a basketball. He was in eighth grade and, he said, "I felt at home. " Now a redshirt freshman at UCLA, he looks very much as though he belongs on the court: 6 feet 9 with a massive wingspan and huge hands. It's where he'd like to be too, but he has been forced to be patient. Bail was a dominant power forward at Rosenberg (Texas) Lamar Consolidated High two years ago. His original college choice was Texas Tech, but he left the Red Raiders' basketball program after three weeks, a casualty of Coach Billy Gillispie's implosion.

Oregon State not only lost its most experienced defensive back when Calvin Carlyle dislocated his left shoulder during practice last week, it also lost an emotional leader. Carlyle, a senior safety from Dorsey High, is so demonstrative he would run into the offensive huddle during timeouts and rally his teammates. "We already needed some gaps filled, and losing him, we don't what it means until you see who will answer the call," Beaver running back Ken Simonton said.

UCLA tackle Torian White was arrested early Sunday morning on suspicion of felony sexual assault. UCLA police responded to a call from an apartment complex near the campus about 3 a.m., the school said in a news release. White, a redshirt sophomore from Inglewood, was arrested a short time later and booked into the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Twin Towers correctional facility. As of late afternoon Tuesday, he was in custody without bail. No charges had been filed. White was scheduled to have a hearing Monday, but "we have asked for more investigation," said Jane Robinson, public information officer for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

The first day of full-contact drills at USC training camp was a good day for the defense. Linemen penetrated the backfield. Linebacker Matt Grootegoed intercepted a Carson Palmer pass. Safety Troy Polamalu leveled receiver Marcell Allmond on a route across the middle. "The defense whipped our butts from the first practice to the last," receiver Kareem Kelly said. "We have to raise our level of intensity."

With spring practice in its last week, Matt Moore and Drew Olson appear as close as ever in the competition to win the starting job at quarterback. The most severe challenge has not come from one another, however. It's learning the offense installed by new Bruin Coach Karl Dorrell. "They are all struggling with learning and running the system," Dorrell said. "In this system, the quarterback really has to know what he is doing, making reads and making adjustments."

ALLEN BRADFORD 5 feet 11, 225 pounds Junior San Bernardino On the chart: Fits the mold of the power back but has the speed to break away, as he demonstrated almost daily during spring practice. Might be tough for him to crack the starting lineup, but he is forcing coaches' hand to play more. Last year: An outstanding special teams player, he got only 15 carries but turned two of his three pass receptions into touchdowns. Highlight reel: Caught touchdown passes against Washington State and Notre Dame, but his greatest contribution has been his inspired play on special teams.

Jerry Owens' football season was cut short last November, when the All-American receiver for Hart High suffered a broken tibia in a regular-season finale against Canyon. The injury sidelined Owens for the Indians' Southern Section Division III title run, but he has recovered in time to play in one of the nation's premier all-star games.

Two key basketball players will not return to Cal State Dominguez Hills this season, and that means Coach David Yanai has only one returning starter, junior Anthony Blackman, a 6-7 center. Missing are 6-5 forward Tony Akins, who transferred to UC Santa Barbara, and 6-3 guard Vico Nomaaea, who is on a two-year mission for the Mormon Church.

UCLA Coach Jim Mora has a strong opinion about Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota . "I had a couple NFL guys ask me if he can play at the next level and I told them, 'Have you not watched him?' " Mora said. "He's going to rip it up at the next level. He's ripping it up at this level. He's special. " Mora will get to watch up close Saturday when the 12th-ranked Bruins face the second-ranked Ducks in Eugene, Ore., and he admitted that "I don't know how excited I am about watching him Saturday night.

Returning a punt for 70 yards against New Mexico State? No problem for UCLA running back Steven Manfro. "I just saw a little crease and I hit it," the 5-foot-9, 189-pound redshirt sophomore said. Catching a pass for the Bruins' second touchdown Saturday and making the tackle on the Aggies' ensuing kickoff? No big deal. "Always, scoring just adds confidence to your play. It makes you want to get out there and just continue to help the team and play to the best of your abilities," Manfro said, his tone very matter-of-fact.

People never tire of making the comparison. Nevada quarterback Cody Fajardo accepts it. It's Colin Kaepernick this and Colin Kaepernick that. Even Fajardo can get caught up in stories about the former Wolf Pack star. Hours before Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers took the field for last season's Super Bowl, Fajardo fired off a text message to his predecessor. "I just said, 'Congrats, good luck,' " Fajardo said. "A few minutes later, he sent back, 'Thanks, Cody.' This was one of the biggest days in his life and he took the time to respond.

UCLA got a little thinner at quarterback Monday. T.J. Millweard met with Coach Jim Mora and asked to be released from his scholarship so he could transfer. The request was granted. The Bruins now have three quarterbacks on scholarship: starter Brett Hundley , redshirt freshman Jerry Neuheisel and freshman Asiantii Woulard . "They are the right three," Mora said. "I'd rather have the right three than the wrong five. " Millweard said he decided to leave because "I grew up in the Midwest and the South.

Though it was obvious to most observers since the start of training camp, USC's quarterback competition officially became a two-man race when Coach Lane Kiffin announced Sunday that freshman Max Browne was behind Max Wittek and Cody Kessler . "It's going from three to two," Kiffin said. The 6-foot-5 Browne, who enrolled in January and participated in spring practice, gained strength during the summer and has demonstrated uncommon maturity and poise since arriving on campus.

Brett Hundley, UCLA's do-it-all quarterback, has noticed changes. Some were subtle, like the stirring of a breeze. "There are people I'll see on campus who go, 'Oh, that's Brett Hundley,' but they won't come talk with me," Hundley said, chuckling between bites of pasta at a campus cafeteria. "I'm a regular person. I'm going to talk with you. " Some hit like a wind gust. "When I first got here, USC was huge," said Hundley, who attended high school in Arizona. "They were running the town for a minute.

Tailback Tyler Ebell isn't happy. He isn't healthy. And he isn't talking to the media. Teammates say Ebell is disgruntled with his diminished role one year after he rushed for 994 yards and 10 touchdowns in nine games. He has rushed for 501 yards and two touchdowns in 114 carries, slightly fewer yards and carries than freshman Maurice Drew.

Brandon Stephens knows the scouting report. USC's defensive linemen are relentless. Strong-willed. Uncontrollable at times. Stephens, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound offensive tackle for Brigham Young, is not intimidated. Not as the married father of two young daughters. "I can tell you that no defensive line in the nation is as ferocious as my little girls when they wake up at 3:30 in the morning -- and certainly not as hungry," Stephens said.

Devon Kennard found his niche. The fifth-year senior came to USC as a defensive end, started at outside linebacker near the end of his freshman season, played middle linebacker as a sophomore and was a defensive end in 2011. Kennard redshirted last season because of a chest muscle injury suffered on the eve of training camp. This spring, the 6-foot-3, 260-pound Kennard has appeared perfectly cast as an end-linebacker hybrid in a scheme installed by new defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast.
