Power 4 Starter

The emerging prospect has some very impressive measurements that have his suitors talking. At 6-foot-4, 227-pounds, 10-inch hand, and a 7-foot wingspan. The physical traits as well as his continued development in the weight room and natural maturation have his weight and strength gains to be limitless.

Adebawore is a bouncy long limbed athlete with a chiseled physique. He is a twitched up player that has very good change of direction for a player his size. Very smooth with his body control and overall agility. Good acceleration to close the air space on his opponent whether it's an offensive lineman or an opposing ball carrier.
You constantly see flashes of his burst and suddenness off the ball to cause havoc in the offense's backfield. With a very good get off on the snap he is able to get even with the defender in pass rush where is able to run the hoop with ease as he has good flexibility to bend and turn the corner. Very active player with his hands that does not stay blocked. Does a good job keeping his feet moving on contact which gives him an advantage a lot of times on blockers as he uses this along with good play strength to gain depth. Good football instincts in regards to block and play recognition. He understands within the scheme that he is playing what his assignment is and he stays active to be engaged in the play in a positive manner. Plays with a very good motor and sense of urgency.

The talent and tools along with traits equal a prospect that as he evolves with his pass rush skills and techniques can cause sustained duress on the offensive line. With the athleticism and comfort level to play in either a 2 or 3 point stance makes him skilled enough for either an odd or even front schemed defense. The future is trending in the right direction for this candidate to be a multiple-year starter and all-conference performer on the power 5 level.
