Q: What goals did you set and/or accomplish in your final collegiate season?
Goals that I set for myself this season was winning a Championship also becoming a better overall player and leader for my team. I was only able to accomplish two of these goals due to a three way tie in the conference. If you watch film you will be able to see my game evolved to me becoming a solid 2020 draft prospect.
Q: What would your coaches and teammates say about the type of player you are?
My coaches would say I am an extremely athletic lineman especially for my size and they felt comfortable checking the protection to the other knowing I would be good alone on an island. I definitely owe a lot to them for developing me from a kid with just grit to a technical lineman with a tremendous upside. If there is anyone to ask about the type of player I am its my teammates. They would say I was a great leader and made them play better through my actions. I was like a big brother to a lot of my teammates especially the freshman and left them with one say “leave it all on the field and everything will take care of itself.”
Q: When you are studying film, what do you focus on to improve your game?
I focus on all aspects of my game from my stance changing from three point to a two point stance. Which foot should I step with on certain plays. Just my overall body language I try my best to keep the same stance so I won’t reveal the play. I also spend a lot of time watching my opponent. What moves they like to do and would ask scout team players to perform these moves so its like clockwork in games.
Q: What separates you from the other pro prospects at your position?
What separates me from other prospects is my ability to adapt to any situation. I didn’t start playing football till my junior year of high school prior to this I was playing basketball for my hometown school. My first three years of football I had to beat an older player for a starting spot. This work ethic and adaptability is what made the player I am today.
Q: What is your offseason plan to train and prepare for professional opportunities?
My offseason plan is to play in the FCS bowl first which I did and received the honorable mention award going against top players in the division above me. Now I am trying to train at numerous facilities including PRO EGDE in New Jersey and Breakout Athlete in CT while I finish school.
Q: What kind of strengths and abilities will you bring to a team that will stand out both on and off the field?
I will bring a true lineman’s mentality which is put your head down and work in every single aspect of the game on and off the field. By improving my game on the field while staying out of trouble and doing good for my community off the field.
Q: What is your final pitch to the NFL or any other pro leagues?
Coming from a royal family in Nigeria helps separate me from not just prospects in my position but all prospects in this class. Being from this family doesn’t allow me to be complacent and will always leave me hungry to prove I belong at the next level which is what I am trying to accomplish. I am not going to stop till my dream is achieved.
