Butler DL "Progressing Week by Week"
The 2012 football season was another to remember for Butler Community College. Head Coach Troy Morrell led the Grizzlies to the NJCAA National Championship Game for the sixth time in his 12 year tenure. On a roster filled with future Division 1 players, none may have a more interesting back story than Ufomba Kamalu. Kamalu is 6-foot-6, 280-pound defensive lineman from Georgia that excelled for the Grizzlies this season, logging 54 tackles and 7.5 sacks. The son of Nigerian immigrants, he may have the most upside of any of Morrell's charges. "Ufomba is really just learning the game," Morrell said. "He's progressing week by week. He was MVP of the national title game on defense." Kamalu's father was in the Nigerian Army, and came to American to earn his doctorate from Cal. When Kamalu was born, his parents sent him to Nigeria to learn the culture. He returned to the U.S. in eighth grade, and began playing organized football for the first time a year later. "He's well put together," Morell said, impressed by the potential Kamalu possesses. "The thing that separates him, I think, is his flexibility. He's lean, streamline, and he's a runner. He's definitely got a long frame where he can pack on good weight." Morrell isn't sure what Kamalu's future holds. He visited West Virginia and Auburn in December, but he is still an under the radar prospect. With three years of eligibility remaining, he could opt to return to Butler in 2013. "He's a December graduate, and he redshirted for us last year. I don't know what will happen."
