Projection

Power-5 Starter

Comparison

Osa Odighizuwa Dallas Cowboys

Accomplished high school wrestler and football player who comes from a football family. Built like a wrestler and classic interior defensive lineman. Stocky, strong and compact. Is not this massive space eater currently around 6-foot-2, 270 pounds, but is a prototype three-tech. Strength and understanding of leverage allow him to anchor despite not being a 320-pound nose. Shocks blockers with initial contact and can get under them and drive them into the backfield. Plays with great motor. Is very active with feet and hands and will run down plays away from him. Shows the ability to explode off the ball and has a good repertoire of moves from a push-pull to a swim move. Tenacity, technique and physical strength all help to project him as an impact player at the Power Five level and potential eventual NFL prospect.

H.S. Athletic Background

A member of the 2023 Freaks List for 247Sports.
Also a decorated wrestling. Three-time state champion in the heavyweight division and at one point was ranked as the nation’s #2 heavyweight wrestler per MatScouts.
