Femi Oladejo reveals how his body has changed since last season

Femi Oladejo made a big change in his football life this offseason, transferring from Cal to UCLA over the winter. But he said his body hasn’t changed much making the trip down from Northern California to SoCal.

Oladejo was recently asked about his measurables after a spring practice.

“6’3, 250 right around there,” Oladejo said, adding that he has probably lost three or four pounds.

He is one of five Pac-12 players to transfer into the program along with former California wide receiver J.Michael Sturdivant, former USC wide receiver Kyle Ford, former Oregon defensive lineman Keanu Williams and former Oregon tight end Moliki Matavao.

Oladejo said the decision to transfer to UCLA was an easy one and that he feels he has adopted very well to the culture in Westwood.

“Definitely similar but everything is great,” Oladejo said. “No complaints at all. Very grateful. I think I was able to adapt very well.”

Femi Oladejo could be in line for a big-time role this season

In his first season with UCLA, Femi Oladejo could end up being a major contributor to the Bruins. That what he was for Cal last season.

One of the Golden Bears’ top defenders, Oladejo finished the 2022 season with 91 tackles and one interception. In one game against his future teammates, he made 17 stops.

But Oladejo didn’t say when asked what he wants his role to be that he wants to be a superstar. He gave a modest answer explaining that he wants to do whatever he can to win ballgames.

“Coming in a contributing to the team,” Oladejo said. “Just being a ball player and helping the team win in any way. Special teams or whatever it is.”

But it wouldn’t be a surprise if Oladejo carves out a big role for himself.

Bruins head coach Chip Kelly has been complementary of the new linebacker, saying that he his work ethic has stood out this spring.

“He’s obviously got some physical qualities that we really like,” Kelly said. “He’s tall, (and) he’s long, covers a lot of space in a short amount of time; he’s got really good movement skills for a guy that big, can get into a lot of passing lanes and disrupt some things because of his length. But I really just think it’s his work ethic and his mindset that have been really, really impressive so far since he got here in January.”
