It's official. DT Ufomba Kamalu has signed with the Miami Hurricanes. Read on to learn more about him.

Player: DT Ufomba Kamalu

School: El Dorado (KS) Butler CC

Recruiting: A lightly recruited Junior College prospect, Kamalu took a visit to West Virginia in December before seeing Miami in January. He committed after his visit here, and never saw anyone after that. Miami offered him on his visit in December.

Scouting Report: Kamalu helped lead his team to a national championship on the field in 2012. He was the Defensive MVP in the title game. He has ideal size, plus athleticism, and has shown the ability to play both tackle and end.

2012 season: Kamalu finished this past season with 54 tackles, eight sacks, and three caused fumbles.

Mike’s Take: Kamalu is an interesting prospect. He’s still very raw in terms of his technique and development. However, he was very good at times in 2012 including in the championship game. He was athletic enough to play a lot of defensive end but because of his size and growth potential he’ll become a tackle at Miami. While it was unfortunate that he wasn’t able to enroll early, it is a bonus that he redshirted a year so he will enter next season as a sophomore. He’s probably a year away from being able to contribute physically but he definitely has a lot of the tools you look for.
