LOS ANGELES (AP) - If Myles Jack had wanted to be a running back coming out of high school last year, he had his pick of several SEC schools. He also could have played any position he wanted at Washington, just across the lake from his hometown.
UCLA's freshman linebacker didn't really want to carry the ball, though. He said likes to hit and tackle people.
Yet one of the nation's top young defensive players is currently the Pac-12's offensive player of the week. The 13th-ranked Bruins' coaches couldn't resist turning Jack into a two-way player in a key victory over Arizona. And they just might do it again when UCLA (7-2, 4-2 Pac-12) hosts Jack's hometown Huskies (6-3, 3-3) on Friday night.
