Edefuan Ulofoshio is still 'eating the frog'
Two surgeries behind him, the senior linebacker represented the Huskies at Pac-12 Media Day.
LAS VEGAS — William Inge scanned the schedule and did the math.
Six to nine months? Hmm. OK, right there: Friday, Nov. 4, Oregon State. That’s when you’ll come back, he told Edefuan Ulofoshio, Washington’s tough-luck linebacker.
Doctors had more or less ruled out the possibility that Ulofoshio would play in 2022 after he tore his ACL during a winter conditioning drill. Inge, his position coach, was the first to offer any measure of hope that it could be done.
It’s the kind of thing Ulofoshio appreciates in hindsight. At the time, it didn’t quite pencil out.
“When he first said it, I was like, ‘I am not coming back for Oregon State,’” Ulofoshio said Friday, laughing, seated at a table on the expansive third story of Resorts World Las Vegas. “And then as the weeks kept going on, the pieces kept falling in place, and it ended up happening the way it was.”
