The 6-foot-2, 295-pound senior found out the news during the team’s video conference call. During the meeting, head coach Kyle Whittingham told the team to unmute their mics. Just as he said that, a graphic appeared on the screen that congratulated London on getting a full-ride scholarship.
After his teammates cheered and congratulated him, Whittingham had a special message for the senior.
“You talk about another example of a guy who did nothing but bust his butt,” he said. “Bart has done everything the right way, never asked for anything, has worked hard, is a great teammate and a great team guy. I’m very proud of you and congratulations!”
The offensive lineman enters his senior season at Utah after transferring in 2016 from Ohio Wesleyan. In 2017, Bartholomew used his redshirt before playing on the scout team in 2018. In 2019, Bartholomew played in two games against Idaho State and Colorado.
