WVU Football Recruiting

WVU Football to Host 4-Star 2024 Commit This Weekend



WVU Football DE recruit Obinna Onwuka

This Saturday is shaping up to be a big day for the WVU football program. Not only is it Military Appreciation Day and an opportunity for the Mountaineers to reach bowl eligibility, but a 4-star recruit will be in town.

Obinna Onwuka, WVU’s top recruit for 2024, announced on Tuesday afternoon that he will be visiting campus this weekend foe the BYU game. This will mark the second time the 6-foot-2, 225-pound defensive end prospect out of Upper Marlboro, Maryland attended a game this season. He was also in attendance for the Backyard Brawl against Pitt.

Onwuka committed to become a future Mountaineer on June 9 and has since been the most vocal 2024 recruit. He’s even continuously dispelled rumors that he may flip to Virginia Tech, one of several Power Five schools who were heavily interested in him before he committed to West Virginia.

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.
