John Ursua, WR, Hawaii #5

5096, 174, 4.41


Notes: Born in Kailua-Kona, HI. Nickname is “J-Dub.” Speaks both French and Hawaiian. Former high school quarterback. Served a two-year church mission in Paris, France after high school. Redshirted in 2015. Played in all 14 games, making 13 starts at ‘H’ receiver on the inside, catching 53 passes for 652 yards (12.3 avg.) and 3 touchdowns and returned punts 8-63 in 2016. Played in 6 games before a season-ending torn right ACL knee injury, caught 47-667-5 (14.2 avg.) and returned punts 2-11 in 2017. Played in 13 games and caught 89-1,343-16 (15.1 avg.) in 2018. Opted to declare with a year of eligibility remaining and will be a 25-year-old rookie in 2019.

Positives: Excellent production as a junior. Blazing speed. Big play threat who has a knack for getting behind defenses. High football IQ and work ethic.

Negatives: Small and durability is a question. Overaged for a rookie.

Summary: May go undrafted because of his size but is certainly worth bringing to training camp and could surprise if he avoids injury.
