COMMIT! Virginia football lands Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah

New, comments

Outside linebacker/safety is one of the top prospects in the Commonwealth for 2017

There was some good news to come out of UVA’s football weekend after all: standout Bethel linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah committed to Bronco Mendenhall and the Cavaliers on Sunday night.

Owusu-Koramoah is a three-star recruit on both Rivals and 247. He is 247’s #12 Virginia-native prospect in the class of 2017, and ranks 34th in Rivals’ Virginia rankings. UVA won out for his commitment over NC State, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Washington State, and half the Ivy League.

Jeremiah is an explosive athlete, with a lanky frame that should add quality muscle under Frank Wintrich’s development program. He locates the ball well in coverage and brings the freakin’ lumber in the run game. His closing speed lets him disrupt plays in the backfield. Look forward to a few years of him and Jordan Mack wreaking havoc opposite one another.
