Oluwatimi is a three-year starter for Virginia as he has started 36 of the 37 games played in the past three years. He only missed one start due to an injury in 2019, but he played both guard positions in that same game.
Oluwatimi was a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s best center. He was named a Second-Team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America, Action Sports Network, Phil Steele, and Pro Football Network.
Oluwatimi measures in at 6-foot-3 and 311 pounds and has been one of the most-consistent blockers for Virginia’s second-ranked passing offense in the nation (373.5 passing yards per game). He could be an immediate impact player for the 2022 season especially with Michigan’s Andrew Vastardis playing as a graduate student.
