When 247Sport’s Brian Dohn wrote about Ojiegbe as a high school prospect, he was complimentary of his abilities but also noted that he needed improvement:
"“Motivated to improve. Has to continue to refine technique, particularly when blitzing off edge. Hard worker with positive mentality. Continued development in ability to dip shoulder and explode when getting around offensive tackle is important.”"
Ojiegbe’s high school highlights make it abundantly clear that he will be an edge rusher in college, and Dohn noted he can play with his hand in the dirt or standing up.
What we’ve heard from fall camp is that he has made his presence as an edge rusher known and that probably gives him a little advantage over fellow freshman AJ Hoffler.
The part we don’t know is how he figures into the defensive end depth chart against a guy like Jaheim Lawson, who appears to have a similar skill set. We also don’t know if either Ojiegbe or Lawson fits into this defensive scheme as a standing pass rusher. It sounds like they are more likely to utilize a 3-3-5 formation than a 3-4-4.
