WVU Football recruit DE Obinna Onwuka

Obinna Onwuka, a class of 2024 four-star athlete out of Charles H. Flowers in Springdale, Maryland has narrowed his school choice down to seven, and West Virginia is on his final list.

WVU is on his list along with Boston College, Maryland, Memphis, USC, Virginia Tech and Penn State. The Mountaineers made an offer to Onwuka on Jan. 19.

Onwuka, listed at 6’2″ and 225 pounds, is ranked as the No. 12 player in Maryland, the No. 30 edge-rusher, and the No. 359 player nationally, according to 247Sports composite rankings.

In an interview with WVSN back in January, Onwuka talked about what he’s looking for in a school. “Academics, the culture, and the mutual support of for students” Onkuwa said are the main attributes he wants to find in a college a program before fully committing.

2024 Recruit Obinna Onwuka’s Versatility Would be Invaluable to West Virginia

Onwuka is a versatile player that can play in a 4-3 as an edge rusher or a 3-4 as an outside linebacker. He has the speed to get around the corner and get to pass rushers and ball carriers alike, and even strong enough to get off of would-be blockers and a nice swim move. Onkowa has the closing speed to get home in the backfield, and even with his natural strength and speed, he can add size to his frame to make himself a real impact player.
