For many aspiring football players, it takes years of work and dedication to prove they are worthy of scholarship offers from a major college programs. For others, a collection of natural physical skills and a quick affinity for the sport is all that’s needed. That was the case for Blairstown (N.J.) Blair Academy defensive end David Ojabo, who announced his commitment to Michigan on Monday morning.

Originally born in Nigeria, then living much of his life Scotland, Ojabo noted in his announcement tweet that it was his dream to play basketball when he made the move to the United States. But with just one season of football under his belt, colleges around the nation quickly took notice.

Standing in at 6-5, 235 pounds, Ojabo hauled in scholarship offers from schools like Notre Dame, Penn State, Texas A&M, Clemson and Ohio State, ultimately deciding that Michigan would be the place he would play college ball.

Rated as a three-star prospect by Rivals and 247 Sports, while garnering four star from ESPN, Ojabo is the 18th prospect to announce for Michigan’s 2019 recruiting class, with eight players declaring their intentions in the last nine days.
