LOS ANGELES (AP) -UCLA tailback Christian Ramirez won't play for the Bruins this season because he didn't meet NCAA eligibility requirements.
The junior will have two seasons of eligibility remaining and can count 2008 as a redshirt season.
``This is unfortunate for Christian and for our team,'' first-year coach Rick Neuheisel said Tuesday. ``I'm sure Christian will work hard to ensure this situation does not occur again.''
Strong safety Bret Lockett has been suspended for the season opener Sept. 1 against Tennessee for violating an unspecified team policy involving academics.
The senior will be able to practice when training camp opens Aug. 5.
``Bret understands that he made a mistake,'' Neuheisel said.
