Onwuka, listed at 6-foot-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.

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