UCLA DL Jay Toia practicing with team despite online video showing him threatening students

UCLA defensive lineman Jay Toia practiced Wednesday after a video of him threatening a group of students inside an elevator during a party on October 31 surfaced online Tuesday.

Bruins head coach Chip Kelly was asked repeatedly about Toia's presence at practice Wednesday and while he acknowledged that he had seen the video, he repeated the school's statement on the matter.

"We are aware of the video and we are following university protocols on student conduct," Kelly said.

The LA Times also reported that Toia lost an NIL sponsorship with Campus Mogul because of the video.
