93 Days Until The College Football Season Kicks Off
More defensive linemen? More defensive linemen!
Yesterday for day 94 I went over the elite college career of current New York Giant and former USC Trojan Leonard Williams. Today for day 93, I’ll be covering a defensive tackle that played his college ball right in my back yard at UConn.
Folorunso Fatukasi was a 3 star recruit out of Beach Channel High School in Rockaway Park, New York. He held small school offers from Syracuse, Buffalo, and Rutgers, but accepted a full ride to play at UConn for the Huskies.
Fatukasi spent four season in Storrs, CT with the Huskies where he saw time immediately. As a freshman in blue and white, Fatukasi made an appearance in 11 games where he tallied 31 tackles with 3 for loss.
In 2015, he was named AAC All Conference Honorable Mention following a season where he made 51 tackles, 8 for loss, 7.5 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles. Fatukasis last two seasons at UConn were also productive as he combined for 88 tackles, 10 for loss, and 6.5 sacks.
Fatukasi was drafted in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft by the New York Jets. He recently signed a 3 year, 30 million dollar deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Tomorrow for day 92, I’ll be covering another defensive lineman; one that dominated at Alabama.
