College Note - Washington Edefuan Ulofoshio
On the first day of his last year of college football, Edefuan Ulofoshio was back in the middle of it all Monday morning during Washington's first spring practice. "It is just a blessing to be out here, man," the senior linebacker said. "Honestly, it's a blessing to just be talking to you guys (in the media) again.
Because I understand that it's not guaranteed. You know, things happen. So just taking it one day at a time, man.
It's just fun. I'm just really enjoying it right now. " Entering his sixth sea son at UW, Ulofoshio has experienced a little bit of everything during his college career.
A former walk-on, he emerged as a starting middle linebacker late in 2019, then earned some All-America recognition in 2020. But he's missed significant time the past two seasons with multiple injuries. Finally healthy again, Ulofoshio has an earned perspective going into his final season.
He sees this last chapter more as a new beginning, part of the reason he chose to switch his uniform number from No. 48 to No. 5.
"Mostly because I just feel like I just want to come in with something to prove," he said. "You know, '48' did a lot of things here. But number 5 hasn't done anything on this field.
So I'm just trying to make a name for myself right now. " - Sea ttle Times .
