Bamidele Olaseni Makes Utah Debut At Right Tackle Against The Huskies

Nov 2, 2019, 2:00 PM | Updated: 3:46 pm

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – In his much-anticipated debut Bamidele Olaseni, lovingly known by Ute fans as Bam, started at right tackle against the Washington Huskies.

Olaseni hasn’t been playing in order to maintain his redshirt.

On June 13th, 2018, the NCAA changed its policy on the redshirt rule, allowing players to compete in up to four games without losing a season of eligibility. This rule, however, only applies during the regular season so if Utah were to make it to the Pac-12 title game or a bowl, Olaseni would keep his redshirt.

The offensive lineman is a highly touted recruit, listed at 6’7″, 330 lbs, he was the number 10 ranked offensive tackle in the country and had offers from the likes of Auburn, Ohio State, Nebraska and Texas.
