Saint Louis offensive lineman Fred Ulu-Perry hasn’t wavered in his early commitment to UCLA.
The 6-foot-2,5, 295-pound left tackle committed to UCLA before his senior year began.
“I’m a UCLA commit, 110 percent,” he texted on Monday night.
But that doesn’t mean Ulu-Perry is staying land-locked. In January, he plans to visit Texas A&M, Colorado and UH. He also has a scholarship offer from Texas Tech.
Former Punahou kicker Kaimi Fairbairn is starting at UCLA. Locally, Punahou offensive lineman Semisi Uluave has an offer from the Bruins, but has not committed to a school yet.
In the meantime, Ulu-Perry is working out and preparing for the next level. He has also forsaken his senior season in basketball to focus on training for football. The Saint Louis basketball team is 6-0 in preseason. Last year, Ulu-Perry was a strong low post presence defensively, and among the best role players in the ILH thanks to his brick-wall screens.
“It’s hard watching Haka (Johnson) and the guys ball out,” he texted. “I can’t wait (to see) the ‘Iolani Classic.”
