Oregon lost two starting defensive linemen due to graduation (Zack Freiter and Chris Tetterton) from a defensive unit that astonished the nation with their performance in the Fiesta Bowl. The 2001 Duck defensee allowed only 115.3 yards per game while in comparison the Oregon offense gained 197.2 yards per game.
Solomona originally signed a National Letter of Intent (NLI) to the University of Washington as a high school student-athlete. Solomona graduated from San Pedro High School in San Pedro California and currently resides from Torrance, California. Last fall, Solomona had given a soft-verbal commitment to the University of Washington but had also considered Arizona.
