UCLA redshirt freshman wide receiver Nick Pasquale died Sunday morning after being struck by a car in San Clemente, Calif.

"This is a tragic loss," UCLA coach Jim Mora said in a statement. "Nick was an outstanding young man who had a positive impact on everyone who knew him. He was a great teammate who was loved and respected by his entire team. Our thoughts are with the Pasquale family."

"The UCLA family lost a wonderful young man who represented the university, his team and his family well," UCLA athletic director Dan Guerrero said. "Our hearts go out to the Pasquale family, and we will do everything we can to assist and support them, as well as his teammates, as they go through this unthinkable tragedy."

Pasquale was a walk-on at UCLA in his second season at the school. He was 20 years old.
