Listed atop the depth chart at free safety, Oaks Christian School product Aaron Ware is expected to make his first collegiate start Labor Day against Tennessee as senior Bret Lockett serves a one-game suspension
Here's what head coach Rick Neuheisel had to say about Ware, whose brother, Matt, played both quarterback and defensive back at UCLA:
"Aaron has been a very consistent player for us and he's family for this place... Little brothers are always in that shadow. This is Aaron's time to shine.
Aaron may just like season openers. He recovered an onsides kick in the 2007 opener at Stanford. A former star tailback at Oaks Christian, he has played in all 26 games of his freshman and sophomore seasons, primarily on special teams.
