Ugo Ihemelu is an incredibly speedy central defender. According to his Colorado Rapids teammate Herc, Ugo came close to the Copa America.
"Ugo was under consideration, too. He went with us for vaccinations. It would have been great to have him along. He was my roommate in LA. He’s my roommate here. He’s one of my best friends, so definitely that would have been a huge comfort level if he was going."
Me: So Ugo was under consideration as well?
"Ugo was on the preliminary roster. As soon as I found out I was going, I asked, ‘Who else from the Rapids?”
Me: This means he’s on the radar.
"Ugo’s young and he’s got so much potential. I see that guy blowing up. I just hope this fuels him and drives him."
