It’s Official: Michigan Football Has The Best Center In The Nation

U-M’s Olu Oluwatimi transferred to Michigan for the 2022 season, and that decision is now paying off in a very big way.

It’s official: Michigan’s Olu Oluwatimi is the best center in all of college football. 

In his first year with the University of Michigan, the transfer from the University of Virginia has been a key piece to the Wolverines dominant offensive line. As a result of his production and consistency, Oluwatimi was recently awarded with the Rimington Trophy – an award given to the best center in college football. 

Prior to Michigan, Oluwatimi earned three varsity letters at Virginia (2019-20-21), making 32 straight starts at center. He began his career at Air Force (2017) before transferring to the University of Virginia, where he earned his degree in economics.
