Moses Osemwegie

R-Fr., Linebacker, 6-0, 220

Nashville, Tennessee
Montgomery Bell Academy

Osemwegie appears to be a starter as a redshirt freshman based on his performance in spring practice... Combines good strength and size with superb speed... Great in pursuit and likes to hit... Lacks game experience, but provides defensive unit with outside speed it didn’t possess last year... Should be interesting to watch his progress.
