New Husky Staff Moves Ulumoo Ale to Defense

The new University of Washington coaching staff is getting creative in using some of the inherited talent, choosing to move Ulumoo Ale – the largest player on the team – from offensive guard to defensive tackle.

A school spokesman on Friday confirmed the Husky position change, which was first reported by Christian Caple of The Athletic.

The 6-foot-6, 355-pound native Samoan by way of Australia started 10 games over two seasons on the UW offensive line at left guard with decidedly mixed results.

Ale now heads to a position area badly in need of a big body to improve the team’s run defense, which gave up an overly generous 193.6 yards per game.
