WATCH: Freshman Feature Episode 17 - Ike Iwunnah

New, comments

Breaking down the stats, metrics, scouting, projection and more for the true freshman defensive lineman.

With getting Ikechukwu Iwunnah on board, the Michigan Wolverines have chosen a recruit that describes the term “flyer” exceptionally well. A guy with an incredibly tantalizing physical stature and flashes eyebrow raising plays, Iwunnah is a recruit who simply needs some marinating before he finds himself on Michigan’s defensive line in the Big House.

At 6-foot-4 and 275 pounds, he’s already a great size for a strongside end in the presumed 3-4 defense the Wolverines will be going with moving forward. If he continues to bulk up, he could add some great versatility to the interior defensive line, as well. With a great wingspan and his above-average height for a defensive lineman, he shows solid leverage and stack and shed ability. At this point, it’s just about getting his technique refined and getting him a bit more consistent.

With fellow defensive linemen in four-star players Rayshaun Benny and George Rooks, taking a guy like Iwunnah makes a lot of sense for this class, and is one of my most underrated players of this class.
