Alabama lands in top 10 for 2024 5-Star DL Williams Nwaneri
Defensive lineman Williams Nwaneri of the 2024 recruiting class released his top schools list on Thursday. Alabama made the cut as a finalist to land Nwaneri’s commitment.
Nwaneri plays for Lee’s Summit North High School in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. As a junior, he recorded 56 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 12 sacks.
247Sports’ Alan Trieu compared Nwaneri to Buffalo Bills edge rusher AJ Epenesa. His evaluation read as follows:
“Has verified size, length and testing data that is impressive for a player of his build and age. Rare change of direction and agility numbers at his size. Was a good young prospect as a freshman and sophomore but showed big developmental strides on the field as a junior. Quickness off the ball and foot speed in pursuit were improved and those qualities of his are at a high national level. Used his hands better and when combined with his physical gifts, makes him very tough to block. Does not let offensive linemen get clean punches off on him and is able to turn himself and get skinny to help with that.”
Oklahoma is currently the favorite to land Nwaneri, according to On3’s RPM. Nwaneri has taken three unofficial visits to Norman at this point in time.
