UH center Ulu-Perry will miss spring football practice

Offensive lineman Fred Ulu-Perry will not participate in the University of Hawaii football team’s upcoming spring training because of medical and personal issues.

Ulu-Perry, who was projected to compete for the starting center’s job, remains on the roster as a scholarship player, is attending classes and is in good academic standing with the school. Ulu-Perry told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser last week he hopes to resume workouts with the Rainbow Warriors this summer.

As a Saint Louis School senior in 2015, Ulu-Perry was rated as ESPN.com’s No. 1 guard and Scout.com’s No. 1 center.

He signed with UCLA in February 2015. He played in eight games that season as an offensive guard, short-yardage runner and defensive tackle. But he left the Bruins twice that year because of personal reasons — for three games in September 2015 and for good following that Thanksgiving weekend.

After requesting — and receiving — a scholarship release, Ulu-Perry signed a scholarship agreement with the Warriors in December 2015, becoming Nick Rolovich’s first recruit as UH head coach. Rolovich was hired in late November 2015.

At the time, Ulu-Perry said, “I felt my heart was always here.”
