    Nonu never participated after midway through his freshman season due to chronic back problems. His weight had ballooned to 300 lbs and Cabral felt he was 40-50 lbs overweight. There is a chance Nonu would have moved to Defensive Tackle if he had remained healthy. CU honored its commitment to Nonu by granting a medical scholarship. After leaving the team, Nonu was later involved in the incident that caused Katoa's legal problems and suspension (Katoa reacted to Nonu getting tasered).
