Bio: 
First-year starter at Portland State who was named Honorable Mention All-Big Sky and made 21 tackles with seven pass breakups as a senior. Played on the scout team in 2016 after transferring from Alderson Broaddus. Totaled 63 tackles, six interceptions and 25 pass breakups during his three-year career with the Battlers.
Pos: 
Nice-sized defensive back who can line up at cornerback or safety. Sized well, competitive and wins out in battles. Jams receivers at the line to slow their release, mixes it up throughout the route and physically beats down opponents to defend the throw. Stays with assignments, displays a solid burst out of his plant and wraps up tackling. Does a good job to reading and diagnosing.
Neg: 
Does not have great quickness. Slow to transition off the line and lacks quick footwork. Must improve his backpedal and prefers to side shuffle downfield.
Analysis: 
Olumba was not rated by scouts coming into the season but now grades as a legitimate free agent for the next level. He comes with terrific size but has speed limitations that make a move inside, possibly to strong safety, a likelihood.
