Eluemunor Down to Six

Lackawanna (PA) Community College four-star offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor has trimmed his massive scholarship list down to six.

With over 23 offers, Lackawanna (PA) Community College offensive tackle Jermaine Eluemunor has finally narrowed his scholarship list heading into the summer.

"First I want to thank all the coaches and fans who have been recruiting me," Eluemunor tweeted. "It's been fun but I am ready to announce my top 6 now."

The next tweet was a list of the school logos from Arkansas, Alabama, UCLA, Ohio State, Ole Miss and USC.

Eluemunor missed two weeks of spring practice in part because of knee tendinitis, causing him to not have as productive of a spring as he hoped for. Despite the problems, Eluemunor felt he increased his strength.

"I had a lot of fun this spring with my team," Eluemunor told Badger Nation previously. "I felt that when I did get back and I got a few practices under me, I really had a productive spring."

Eluemunor, who prepped at Morris Knolls High in Morristown, N.J., move to the United States from London in 2008. He said he was raw in football and no schools recruited him out of high school so he went the junior college route.

"I wasn't a good player," said Eluemunor. "I am hungrier now. I knowledge of the game wasn't as good as it is now. Down here I got the confidence to be a good player because of the good college coaching we have."

In his first year at Lackawanna, Eluemunor played left tackle, right tackle, right guard, and tight end for the Falcons. He'll start out the season at left tackle which is where most colleges like him at. Eluemunor is still on 18 years of age and won't turn 19 until December when he'll graduate Lackawanna and have three seasons to play two.

"My power stroke and my maturity is what I've been working on," said Eluemunor. "I want to mature more and become more physical. When I go to college, I want to be an All-American and a top 15 pick in the NFL draft. That's my goal along with helping my team win."
