"I was shocked at first then it settled in that it was for real," Uluocha said. "I ran down the training hallway at school waving it around."
Uluocha's interest from Texas came after he put up 53 tackles, 19 tackles for loss and four sacks as a junior, playing multiple spots on the defensive line. And that's where the question comes in: where will he play at the next level?
Uluocha said he hasn't had a chance to talk with the Texas coaches about his projected position yet.
"I don't mind playing anywhere on the line though," Uluocha said.
At 6-foot-3 and 250 pounds currently, Uluocha would seem to be an end. But watch his tape, see his frame and his 4.88 40-yard dash, and hear his goal to add 15 more pounds before August, and he becomes pretty intriguing as a three-technique.
Uluocha doesn't have any offers just yet, but, in addition to Texas, he's hearing from Baylor, Oklahoma, Rice, SMU and Texas A&M. He said his favorites so far are Oklahoma, Texas and Baylor, and he said he loved Ohio State growing up.
The offers should come, especially as more schools get out to see Uluocha in the spring.
