4-Star NFL Academy Edge Emmanuel Okoye Set for USC Visit

One of the most intriguing prospects in the class of 2024 recruiting class is 4-Star Edge Emmanuel Okoye.

Okoye grew up in Nigeria and currently works out with the NFL Academy in the United Kingdom. As of this article’s publication, he has offers from USC, Georgia, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Cal, Vanderbilt, Tulane, Duke, Nebraska, Colorado and others.

How did this fast-riser at defensive end – who only has three games of football under his belt – pick up all these scholarship offers and attention?

Take a look at the 6’5″, 228 pounder for yourself. I think you’ll see that the ceiling is pretty high.

March USC Offer Leads to April 24 Visit

Shaun Nua and USC offered Okoye on March 31. Although that’s less than three weeks ago, Okoye already has a USC visit set.

“Yes! I should be there (USC) on Monday,” Okoye told WeAreSC Wednesday morning.

All Glory to God!! After a great conversation with Coach @CoachNua , I’m blessed to receive a full scholarship offer from @uscfb !! #FightOn@CoachGrinch @OsiUmenyiora @KrisDurham16 @NFLAcademy @CoachNsg @BudElliott3 @AllenTrieu @ChadSimmons_ @247Hudson pic.twitter.com/zkbnjMRgOw

Emmanuel Okoye is a raw talent, but industry experts and P5 coaches alike see the potential

Allow On3’s Chad Simmons to set the stage for Okoye:

“FREAK athlete… Have talked to some that know this young man and RAVE about his ability and athleticism.”

Okoye spent much more time playing basketball and soccer growing up in Nigeria. Then he had a chance to show his stuff at a NFL Africa camp.

That’s where former New York Giants defensive end and fellow international footballer Osi Umenyiora‘s Uprise Academy reportedly scouted Emmanuel Okoye.

Don’t let Okoye’s lack of football experience outside of camp setting fool you, though. He had to start somewhere.

Now, he’s on the international stage as an intriguing American football prospect at the NFL Academy.

Watch the basketball film and use your imagination.

You don’t have to be a scouting expert to know that athleticism like this could potentially translate well on the line of scrimmage.
