Campus Close Up: Justin Madubuike

A closer look at four-star DE Justin Madubuike, who is at Texas right now.

Justin Madubuike is on his way to Austin with his mom, dad and uncle.

He is one of the top overall prospects in the entire country so this is a huge opportunity for the Longhorns.

Madubuike had a monster junior season, collecting 74 tackles, 35 tackles for loss, 16 1/2, sacks, four forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, one punt block, and one field-goal block during McKinney North's 11-3 run to the Texas Class 5A Division I state quarterfinals.


A high effort player. He is one who plays with maximum effort on each and every snap. He plays inside at defensive tackle in a 4-3, and despite being a bit undersized for that position he is able to control the line of scrimmage and make plays behind the line of scrimmage. Causes disruption with his penetration. Has the edge rush ability once he moves out to d-end. He has strong hands to shed blocks if he gets locked up. Plays low and gap sound.
