UCLA opens spring football practice on Tuesday, but the Bruins will be without three players.

Linebacker Todd Golper, wide receiver Ricky Marvray and wide receiver Jerry Rice Jr. are no longer on the roster. The three will graduate this spring. All had one year of eligibility remaining.

Marvray had 20 receptions for 188 yards and two touchdowns as a redshirt freshman in 2010, but had only 10 for 57 yards the following season. Marvray had back surgery last year and played sparingly. He had three receptions for eight yards.

Golper battled a back injury, which slowed his career from his freshman year.

Rice came to UCLA as a walk-on and earned playing time. He has nine receptions for 59 yards in his career.


In other spring news, the Bruins list Devin Fuller as a receiver. He came to UCLA as a quarterback but was pressed into service at receiver as a first freshman last season. He had 20 receptions for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
