UCLA Safety Tevin McDonald was released from the team today after failing his third drug test. Among others that won't be back include linebacker Todd Golper, and receivers Ricky Marvray, and Jerry Rice Jr.
It felt like McDonald was in the dog house after the Holiday Bowl incident so this doesn't surprise me.
Golper wasn't going to get much playing time anyway.
The defections of Marvray and Rice leave our receiving core a little thin.
As far as McDonald goes, I really felt that he had potential to be a Rahim Moore-esque safety with great ballhawking skills. Sad to see his departure, but at least we have decent depth given our latest recruiting class and players coming back.
