RaiderPower.com has caught up with the 6-foot-5, 270-pound offensive tackle multiple times throughout the spring and he said he is just preparing his body to be the best it can be.
Specifically, he said he is working on his footwork and run blocking with his other senior teammates who will play at the D1 level.
What is Akamnonu looking forward to most about college football?
“The intensity,” Akamnonu said.
He plans to bring some of that intensity as well. He said everyone watching should expect him to bring speed to Texas Tech’s offensive line.

“I’m extremely excited,” Akamnonu said. “I think I’ll have an amazing time there.”
“Wreck Em’ and thank you all for standing behind us. You all make the team,” Akamnonu said.
