This fall, Charlotte is moving up from Conference USA to the American Athletic Conference.
Udo was part of the BYU football program for the past four seasons. He competed during spring practices but opted to enter the Transfer Portal as a graduate transfer before spring ball concluded.
He earned his degree from BYU in Global Supply Chain Management from the Marriott School of Business last month.
