BJ Ojulari, a defensive end from Marietta (Ga.) High, is coming to Baton Rouge after signing his national letter of intent on Wednesday and he will likely be bringing company.
A week after five-star tight end and Ojulari teammate Arik Gilbert committed to LSU, Ojulari joined the cause as well, flipping from Tennessee to LSU in late October. He took his official visit to LSU for the Tigers’ regular season finale against Texas A&M.
Ojulari, is a 6-3,-224 pound prospect who’s No. 7 nationally in Geaux247 Sports’ position rankings and is the No. 16 prospect from the Peach State. He has the sought-after tall and trim frame that has become in vogue, following the mold of past LSU stars Barkevious Mingo and Danielle Hunter as well as current Tiger K’lavon Chaisson.
Explosive off the snap whether he has hand in the ground or not, Ojulari lined up all across the field and proved hus value outside of pass rushing. He has great reactions and instincts and is a solid open-field tackler. His strength is pass rushing, but when needed he was able to react well and give pursuit at the high school level. Ojulari can set and hold the edge well, which could be a huge defense against sweeps, tosses, and stretches.
