Maurice Heims Has Traveled the Farthest to Play Husky Football

The first thing you notice about Maurice Heims is he towers over most University of Washington defensive players.

He’s got an inch on the next tallest returning players on the Husky stop unit, fellow edge rushers Zion Tupuola-Fetui and Bralen Trice, and a couple of inches on those behind them, outside linebacker Jeremiah Martin and safety Asa Turner.

At 6-foot-5 and 255 pounds, Heims was the tallest defender on the UW roster until Kalen DeBoer’s new coaching staff got recently got creative and moved the massive 6-foot-6, 355-pound Ulumoo Ale from offensive guard to defensive tackle .
