Offensive lineman Fred Ulu-Perry, who was excused from spring training because of medical and personal issues, has rejoined the University of Hawaii football team.
Ulu-Perry participated in this morning’s strength/conditioning workouts at Ching Athletic Complex. The Rainbow Warriors completed the first week of the four-week offseason conditioning program.
Ulu-Perry was projected to compete for the starting center’s job before being granted a leave from team activities, including the 15 practices of spring training in February and March. During the leave, he remained on scholarship and attended classes.
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.
Ulu-Perry attended UCLA for the 2015 fall semester, playing in eight games as an offensive guard, short-yardage runner and defensive tackle. He left the Bruins following that Thanksgiving weekend. He then requested — and received — a release from his UCLA scholarship.
In December 2015, he signed a scholarship agreement with UH, becoming Nick Rolovich’s first recruit as head coach. Rolovich was hired in November 2015.
