UCLA defensive end Odighizuwa out for 2013

The SportsXchange

UCLA defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa is delaying his junior season in 2013 to recover from right hip surgery.

The Los Angeles Times first reported the surgery would result in a medical redshirt year.

Several injuries on the defensive line could spark a scheme adjustment by coach Jim Mora Jr.

Odighizuwa was the leading candidate to replace first-round draft pick Datone Jones in the Bruins' defense and depth at the position is considered shallow.

Odighizuwa posted 3.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries as a sophomore.
