UCLA starting safety Randall Goforth will reportedly miss Saturday's game against Texas with a shoulder injury.
Goforth started all 13 games for the Bruins last season, ranking fourth on the team in tackles. He started UCLA's first two games but sustained a separated shoulder against Memphis last week.
"Tahaan stepping in is a good thing for us," Mora said. "He’s confident. He understands our scheme. We all feel comfortable if he’s the guy that’s in there."
The Bruins are 2-0 heading into their game in Arlington.
