College Note - Arizona Justin Flowe

Arizona Star News

Former five-star linebacker Justin Flowe's career at Oregon was derailed by injuries. 'That's all in the past,' he says. 'All I can do now is focus on the future.' When Justin Flowe officially became a college football player in 2020, many thought by this point he'd be preparing for the NFL draft. Currently, the only thing connecting Flowe and the NFL is the league's shield logo tattooed on his right hand. But that could change if everything goes according to plan in the linebacker's new chapter with the Arizona Wildcats. Flowe's Plan A? The Upland, California, native, who played in Snoop Dogg's youth football league as a kid and developed the moniker "Baby Man," signed with the Oregon Ducks as a five-star prospect and top-ranked inside linebacker nationally. Plan A was slowed down by a sequence of knee and foot injuries in Flowe's first two seasons at Oregon before he finished with a career-high 35 tackles in 2022, including four in Tucson against the UA. But Flowe clamored for a change of scenery and entered the transfer portal with hopes that Plan B could lead to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell saying Flowe's name at the draft podium. "I just see it as adversity," Flowe said. "Adversity happens to everybody, so (it's about) the way you get through it. I'm just planning now to thrive this year and be the best I can be. "That's all in the past. All I can do now is focus on the future." - Arizona Star News
