DE Chidi Okonya Profile
2016 4-star prospect Chidi Okonya from
Riverdale High School was on campus this past weekend and took some
time to speak with CUTigers about the visit.
"When I was on campus last weekend I noticed how good of a program
Clemson has. I really liked looking at the facilities. The renovations
they are making is the best part. I like what they do defensively.
They were the top ranked defense in the country last season. I like
that a lot," said Okonya.
The defensive end does not have a specific finalized list of schools
at this time, but that should be expected to be coming soon.
"I will probably have a top 10 soon," he said. "Probably after
this current coaching period. I like Tennessee, Duke, Georgia, Ole
Miss, Miami, Stanford and Florida. I am just looking for the school
that makes me the most comfortable."
Despite not having that official top 10 just yet, Okonya noted that an
official commitment may not be all that far away either. "I will
probably commit sometime early in the summer, or maybe toward the
middle of the summer," said Okonya.
Okonya was quick to point out his physique when talking about what
type of addition he can make to whatever destination he chooses for
his collegiate career. "My length, body type and versatility really
stand out. I'm an energy type of guy. I add a spark to my teammates,"
Okonya is measured at 6-foot-5 and 211 pounds.
He is rated as the
number 294 prospect in the nation for the 2016 class and as the number
4 defensive end in Georgia as a rising senior.
