WVU Football recruit DE Obinna Onwuka

One of the top recruits of the WVU football 2024 class is now officially signed, sealed and deliver to the Mountaineers.

Obinna Onwuka (6-foot-2, 225 pounds), who has been committed to West Virginia since June, signed his letter of intent on Wednesday’s National Signing Day.

Ever since committing, Onwuka has been incredibly vocal about his support of the Mountaineers and has worked to try to help lock up other recruits. This even caused him to profess his commitment multiple times, most notably when rumored began to circulate that he was going to flip to Virginia Tech.

Onwuka said “take me home forever” and “this place is heaven” when WVSN asked him about why he decided becoming a Mountaineer was right for him.

Prior to picking WVU, the Upper Marlboro, Maryland was considering a top seven that also included Boston College, Maryland, Memphis, USC, Virginia Tech and Penn State.

Onwuka is ranked as the No. 20 player in Maryland and the No. 43 edge-rusher, 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 traits he wants to find in a college program.

Obinna 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. Onwuka 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.
