The 6-foot-2, 197 pound linebacker from Bethel High School (Hampton, Va.) received an offer Jan. 19 from the Irish, and took an official visit one week later. Owusu-Koramoah remained tight-lipped about his preference, although forecasts had him leaning toward South Bend.
The Bethel product was a former Virginia commitment and had a wide range of offers from FCS schools (James Madison Dukes & Dartmouth Big Green) to Power 5 teams such as the Vanderbilt Commodores and N.C. State Wolfpack.
It’s difficult to compare Owusu-Koramoah among the recruiting services, mostly because they cannot agree on what he is.
Defensive coach Mike Elko’s scheme relies upon a safety/linebacker hybrid, which makes Owusu-Koramoah an ideal fit since he played both positions in high school. He’s also familiar with Elko and linebackers coach Clark Lea, as both previously interacted with him during their time recruiting at Wake Forest.
