Fuimaono ready for the next chapter

A player who shunned the recruiting spotlight before he signed with Washington back in February was Jordan (Long Beach, Ca.) LB Princeton Fuimaono, but Dawgman.com was finally able to catch up with him and he updated us on things including when he will be in Seattle this summer to start his college football career…

"Things are going real good for me right now," Fuimaono told Dawgman.com Monday night. "I've just been getting ready to head up to Washington, finishing up school and working out."

Fuimaono said he currently measures in at 6'2" and is a lean 206 pounds right now.

"My bench is up to 315 and I'm going to be about 210 when I get up there," Fuimaono said. "I talk to coach (Johnny) Nansen a lot about things and he's just making sure I'm getting things done and that I report up there ready to go once I get there."

Because he's been so hard to reach, we asked Fuimaono why he decided to commit to the Dawgs back in August and how his trip in January went.

"I committed to them because it's a good program and I liked the coaches," Fuimaono said. "I had never even been out of the state before, actually even really out of southern California, so when I went up there in January, it was a lot different.

"I was hosted by Talia Crichton when I was up there. He and I grew up together, so when I was up there, he sorta told me about living up there and how much he likes it. He said it's a great place to be and that I will be really happy."

Fuimaono has already been given his clearance by the NCAA Clearing and will be the first in his family to attend college, which he said he's looking forward to, although he will miss his family.

"It's going to be tough, but they are really happy for me and I'm excited," Fuimaono said. "I'm heading up in early July to take part in the ‘Bridge Program' and so that I can work out with the team during the summer. I'm going to give it my all."
