Sideline Video: Okakpu loves to hit
One of the top linebackers in the state of Georgia next fall will be Ebele Okakpu of Roswell. Okakpu has the size, speed, and ability to play college football at a high level and a couple schools have already recognized that. He has good speed, a nose for the football, and he loves to hit.
Prospect: Ebele Okakpu
High School: Roswell (Roswell, Ga.)
Vitals: 6-2, 205-pounds, 4.6
Offers: Vanderbilt and Troy
Favorites: Georgia, Virginia Tech, and Vanderbilt.
The Skinny: Okakpu is a high energy linebacker that is long and quick. He is constantly around the ball and makes play after play. He can deliver big hits on the running back or drop back into coverage. He weighs 205-pounds now and will likely play around 215-pounds as a senior. Two offers are in now, but we expect many more to come this spring.
Okakpu helped Roswell get into the AAAAA State Championship game and we were there to follow him. He had a number of tackles, some big hits, and he showed his speed all night. Check out these exclusive video clips of Okakpu here.
