PLAYERS: Ellis McCarthy
TEAMS: UCLA Bruins
UCLA defensive end Ellis McCarthy's freshman season ended last week when he underwent surgery on his right knee. He will miss the Bridgepoint Education Holiday Bowl on Dec. 27. McCarthy was considered the top prospect in the Bruins 2012 recruiting class. He was the No. 2-ranked defensive tackle nationally as a senior at Monrovia High last season. But his freshman season has been difficult. He underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee before summer training camp, which cost him three weeks, delaying his development. McCarthy appeared in nine games this season, but played sparingly in the last five weeks. McCarthy should be ready for spring practice. -Chris Foster
