Washington received long expected news today as Jordan Lolohea will finally be joining the Husky roster after signing again with the Dawgs.
The defensive end out of Utah originally committed to the Huskies back in 2017 but took an LDS mission upon graduating from high school. There had been talk that he might join the team in time for the 2019 season but he ultimately decided to wait a little longer and is expected to enroll for Winter quarter and be available for Spring football.
In 2017 Lolohea was listed as a 3-star recruit with a 0.857 rating in the 247 Sports composite. That was good for the #31 strong side defensive end in the country and the #11 overall recruit out of the state of Utah.
It will likely take a little bit of time for Jordan to get back into football shape as he hasn’t been working out (in college football terms) for the majority of the past 2+ years. It looks like Washington missed out on another defensive lineman in this class so it wouldn’t be a surprise for them to see if Lolohea can add enough good weight to get in the 270+ range necessary to play with his hand in the ground in UW’s defensive system similar to the trajectory of Benning Potoa’e.
Here were Lolohea’s highlights from his senior season when he was the Utah state leader in sacks.
