Our Take:

Luke Winstel

Ojigebe is a well-built prospect with great “get-off” as an edge defender. The four-star already has the size and measurables to contribute as an underclassman for the Tigers. He’s battle-tested and has faced some of the top programs in the nation at St. John’s College High in Washington, D.C.

In his senior season, Ojigebe led St. Johns to eight wins against a demanding schedule. The team finished ranked No. 54 in the final MaxPreps national rankings. 

Ojigebe was a spring commitment for Clemson and one of the core pieces of the spectacular defensive class that the Tigers’ have built in this cycle.

He has Nigerian roots and goals of reaching the NFL and giving back to his community.

Morgan Thomas - Good size already to play defensive end. Strong upper body strength. Takes on left tackles from standing or 3 point. Uses hands really well to wrangle guys down. Can engage and release off blocks easily. Prefers to move blockers and attack angles. Skilled at setting the edge and holding position.
