    UCLA linebacker Myles Jack has earned the respect of opponents across the country with his stellar play the past few years. And after Jack suffered a season-ending knee injury a few weeks ago, he received a letter from Pat Haden, the athletic director at USC, UCLA’s biggest rival.

    Jack posted an image of the letter from Haden on his Instagram account on Monday.

    The letter reads:

    Dear Myles,

    I have admired the way you play the game of football for the past three years. You have proven yourself to be one of the Pac-12’s best players for sure. Your play and leadership have been amazing. I was sorry to hear about your recent injury and wish you a speedy recovery. Get well soon!

    That’s a classy gesture from Haden.

    Jack burst onto the scene as a two-way player (linebacker and running back) as a freshman for the Bruins in 2013. He has played mainly linebacker over the past few seasons and is considered a top pro prospect.
