DETROIT -- Rated a four-star prospect, Detroit (Mich.) Cass Tech’s Michael Onwenu is own worst critic.
Why? Well, because he says he’s always pushing himself to be “better,” even after a Cass 27-0 victory over Southfield (Mich) High in Saturday’s Prep Kickoff Classic at Wayne State.
“I think I could’ve done better,” said Onwenu, who is committed to Michigan. “The score was 27-0, but we wasn’t satisfied – we want more. We got a lot of work to do.”
What exactly does Onwenu think he needs to work on?
“I say everything,” said Onwenu, who stands at 6-foot-3, 367-pounds. “I came out here a little hot. I played well. I can’t say I did good and I can’t say I did bad. I’m just trying to work on everything.”
Now a senior, Onwenu says he has embraced being a leader for Cass Tech, which is one of the programs for the Great Lakes State.
“I’ve been in the spotlight for a while now, since I was a freshman,” Onwenu said. “I’m just doing my best for the team. I do everything. I’m not hard on nobody. Some people are different, but I try my best to be a leader. ”
With rumors of Onwenu looking at other schools, Onwenu wanted to make it clear he was still committed to Michigan.
“Yeah, it’s still solid,” he said of his commitment.
