Despite the high hopes that Bruins fans had for Hawaiian offensive lineman Stanley Hasiak (especially this year, when our football team is again hit with multiple injuries on the offensive line), it appears that his tumultuous football career in Westwood has finally come to an end.
The L.A. Times is reporting that Hasiak is academically ineligible and as a result will transfer out of Westwood (HT to rb bruin):
Hasiak, a highly recruited offensive lineman as a high school senior in 2009, is academically ineligible and is expected to transfer to a community college, possibly Mt. San Antonio, according to a person in the program who was not authorized to speak publicly.
In two years at UCLA, Hasiak has been suspended twice for violating team rules as a freshman in 2009 and has failed to make grades twice. He was academically ineligible last fall.
Obviously, this is a major blow to an offensive line already depleted by injuries. Moreover, to lose a very promising young offensive lineman (Hasiak was one of the top ranked offensive line recruits coming out of high school) under these circumstances is extremely disappointing.
Although it appears it didn't work out for Stan in Westwood, let's wish him the best wherever he lands and hopefully he can turn it around.
Keep posted for updates.
