On Sunday, hours after Plano (Texas) West football star and UCLA signee Soso Jamabo was arrested for evading police with a vehicle, UCLA Associate Athletic Director for Communications Josh Rupprecht said in a statement that the school was aware of Jamabo’s arrest and declined further comment.
Coach Jim Mora met with the media after a spring practice this week and said he did not yet have enough information to comment when asked if the arrest would impact Jamabo’s status with the program
“At this time, I can’t expand further on the comment that we already made,” Mora said, according to The Orange County Register. “It just wouldn’t be fair for me to do so. I don’t know enough.”
Jamabo was released on $7,500 bond Sunday. He was given written warnings for minor consumption and possession of alcohol, speeding, disregarding a stop sign and not having his license with him.
