Arizona redshirt senior OL Freddie Tagaloa has set school records with a 475 pound max bench and 38 reps at 225 pounds.
"He's a bad man," said former Arizona star LB Scooby Wright. "He also has that first one in/last one out mentality." The 6-foot-8, 300-pound Tagaloa, a former four-star recruit, started seven games at California in 2013 before transferring over. He's being scouted by the NFL. Jul 30 - 1:50 PM

Arizona redshirt junior G Freddie Tagaloa (knee) is listed as out for Saturday's bowl game against New Mexico on the injury report released Thursday.

This will be his fourth consecutive game missed. The 6-foot-8, 300-pound Tagaloa unexpectedly found a home at guard this season, his first with Arizona. He sat out last year after starting seven games at California in 2013. Tagaloa, a former four-star recruit, is an NFL prospect. "He can move people," offensive line coach Jim Michalczik said in the fall. "As a lineman, it’s one thing to get on the guy; it’s another thing to make something happen. It’s like a running back … any running back can run through a big hole, but the running back who makes a guy miss or breaks a tackle, that’s what makes him special. As an offensive lineman, if you can create hole, widen things, make bigger lanes … that’s making a play."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote that he heard that Arizona OT Freddie Tagaloa is "looking very good."

Tagaloa transferred from Cal to Arizona over the winter. Draft analyst Pauline isn't the only one who's telling us to look out for the 6-foot-8, 300-pound tackle, either, as Sports on Earth's Matt Brown also cited him as a potential breakout player for the upcoming season. Arizona figures to score a ton of points this season and the offense should give Tagaloa a chance to shine.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown submits Arizona OT Freddie Tagaloa as a potential breakout start in 2015.

If Brown is right, Tagaloa is going to be a sought-after draft commodity. The massive 6-foot-8 Tagaloa, a former four-star recruit, started seven games at Cal in 2013 before losing his starting job. That news prompted a transfer to Arizona, where he reunited with offensive line coach Jim Michalczik. Per Brown, Tagaloa "has taken hold of the starting left tackle job in an otherwise experienced Arizona offense that should be poised for big things with the skill-position core returning in Rich Rodriguez's prolific scheme."

Former Cal OT Freddie Togaloa won an appeal in late December allowing him to transfer to Arizona.

Without the appeal victory, Togaloa would have been required to sit out two seasons because he was transferring in-conference. Tagaloa will still be required to sit out the 2014 season, but he's now eligible to play in 2015. Tagaloa reunites with offensive line coach Jim Michalczik, who previously coached at Cal.

Former Cal OT Freddie Togaloa will transfer to Arizona.

Togaloa decided to leave the Bears' program earlier this month, shortly after the squad finished a 1-11 campaign in Sonny Dykes' first year. Togaloa's move will become official with completion of a transfer waiver and no problems are anticipated with that process.
