Lolohea Says Washington Was The Right Fit

Washington fans got a pleasant surprise on National Signing Day when East (Salt Lake City, Ut.) LB/DE Jordan Lolohea decided to sign with the Huskies...

"I actually made my decision late last night," Lolohea told "I called the coaches around 10:30 last night and told them of my decision and they were really excited and happy that I was going to sign with them and join the class."

Lolohea chose Washington over offers from BYUUtahColoradoOregonOregon State and Washington State among others and he said it was merely the fact that it fit him perfectly.

"When I took my visit there (on January 13th), I met with the coaches and the other players and it just felt like the right fit for me. It felt like home," Lolohea noted. "I got to know coach Pete (Chris Petersen) and some of the players there and I just felt like I belonged there and when I was going through this whole process, I knew that the place I ended up playing, that was what I was going to need to feel and that's why I chose Washington."

As a senior this past season, Lolohea helped led his team to a 14-0 record by posting 98 tackles, 23 sacks and five tackles-for-loss.

Lolohea is LDS and he plans to take his mission immediately after he graduates in June and he will then enroll at Washington in 2019 once he returns. Top Stories
