Offensive line- Ulumoo Ale
The man, the myth, the mountain. 6’6, 352-pound Ulumoo Ale (formerly known as MJ) has potential to be the starter at left guard this season. Offensive line coach Scott Huff has gone on the record raving about Ale’s progress as a redshirt freshman, but said at the time that he wasn’t quite ready to start. Now, in his third year with the program, it might be time for him to take over. With the Huskies losing three starters on the offensive line, they need some reliable pieces to protect whoever they end up starting at quarterback, and Ale should be one of the names considered for an open spot. Senior Luke Wattenberg might kick out to left tackle to replace Trey Adams, which would probably thrust Ale into the starting role at left guard, but if Wattenberg doesn’t make the move, don’t be surprised if Ale unseats him.
Sneaky bonus pick- Julius Buelow
Adams (barring injury) would’ve been a four-year starter at left tackle. Julius Buelow, a redshirt freshman from Hawaii, has a very similar body type and is incredibly athletic for someone his size. This spring, he could make big moves on the depth chart, and potentially even find himself in the starting spot.
