History: Three-star recruit from Rowlett, TX.
Strengths: Tall and long. Long arms keeps him clean. Active hands working through blocks. Shows flashes of exceptional get off, helping penetrating ability. Fluid mover. Shows the ability to stunt around the edge. Strong swim move.
Weaknesses: Still very raw. Play strength is questionable. Doesn’t often show the ability to drop anchor vs doubles. Is sometimes late seeing the play develop. Timing the snap is inconsistent. Doesn’t have many counters when held up. Balance seems questionable.
Overview: Omenihu is an intriguing prospect because of the scheme diversity. Omenihu has the size and length to play as a 5-technique in a 3-4 alignment, but also may project as a Left End in a 4-3. While labeling him as a tweener would be unfair, he does possess some versatile traits.
