FORT COLLINS, Colo.— Colorado State Head Coach Jim McElwain announced Friday the addition of student-athletes Saladin McCullough II and Willie Udofia Jr. to the Rams’ roster.
McCullough, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback, signed with CSU after playing one season at Moorpark (Calif.) College, and will be a sophomore in 2013. In his short period of time at Moorpark he earned a spot on the school’s honor roll. The freshman defensive back racked up 37 tackles, seven pass breakups and three interceptions in 2012.
A graduate of Bishop Alemany High School in Mission Hills, Calif., McCullough earned first-team All-Serra League and first-team All-California Interscholastic Federation honors as a senior. McCullough is a proven winner, having led the Warriors to a 12-1 season and a Serra League championship as a senior. In two seasons competing at the varsity level he helped his team compile a 22-5 record.
McCullough, whose father Saladin was a standout running back at Oregon, will wear number 14 for the Rams.
Udofia transfers to CSU from East L.A. College where he was named the team’s best wide receiver and earned an associate’s degree. As a speedy wideout, Udofia hauled in 31 receptions for 501 yards and scored eight touchdowns in 2012.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Udofia, who will be a sophomore in 2013, saw a great deal of success at Peachtree Ridge High School in Suwanee, Ga. Udofia led the Lions to back-to-back regional championships and in 2009, as the team’s captain, played in the Georgia state championship, falling 21-14 to Camden County.
Udofia, who recently clocked a time of 4.4 in the 40-yard dash, will wear number 80 for the Rams.
