Yesterday, I mentioned 3-star DL Tobechi Okoli as one of two players most likely to wait until February to sign. Turns out the Missouri native had a chance of heart.
Okoli’s pledge came as a bit of a surprise back in early August. He was arguably Nebraska’s top defensive line target but Rodney Garner had eyes on him as well. The Tigers landed his pledge and now they have his signature.
Evaluator: Allen Trieu
Projection: Power-5 Starter
Comparison: Taco Charlton
Big, long body and has quickly gotten bigger and added good weight. Good athlete who can cover a lot of ground quickly and get off the ball. Shows aggressiveness. Has not played football for long and is still learning technique. Has to keep improving lateral agility as well. Big upside. Will need some time but has the athleticism and size to play for many schools around the country and have a shot at playing beyond college.
War Eagle Tobechi!
