History: Three-star recruit from Sachse, TX. Also ran track in high school.
Strengths: Good size. Light on his feet, shows cutback ability. Good vision, both in the backfield and in open space. Patience, waits for his blocks. When he sees a crease, he hits it. Takes what is given to him, and will push the pile and fight for extra yards. Good balance, indicative of a strong base . Willing blocker. Not a lot of miles on him.
Weaknesses: Top end speed is lacking. Is not a home run threat, can be chased down. Is not a natural receiver out of the backfield. Although willing and active in pass pro, his technique needs to be redefined.
Overview: Ozigbo is a late riser, who really shined at the East/West Shrine Game practice. He has the size, vision and feet to project as a good NFL back. What he lacks is top end speed and receiving ability.
