Obi prepped at Bishop Alemany (Mission Hills, Ca.) High School, but was unable to qualify for a football scholarship.
"I liked the coaches at Valley and it was pretty close to home, so it was a good fit," Obi told JCFootball.com.
As a sophomore this past season, Obi finished with 43 tackles, 4.5 tackles-for-loss, one sack and one interception while playing both as a defensive end and an outside linebacker in Valley's 3-4 scheme.
"I played mainly on the strongside, but I can play on either side," Obi said. "I attack and I'm aggressive. I diagnose the play and then I attack and get to the ball quickly."
One thing that Obi worked on last summer was his overall speed and getting stronger.
"I'm running a 4.6 now and I'm benching 370-plus, so that helped me a lot this year," Obi noted.
On the recruiting front, Obi is still waiting on his first offer but has been getting interest from Northern Arizona, Maine and Temple.
He will graduate in May and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
We will continue to keep track of Obi's progress over the next few months and update news as it happens.
