NCAA Football: Colgate at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Sean Onwualu

Position: Defensive back

Height: 6’1”

Weight: 188 lbs.

Hometown: Sylmar, Calif.

High School: Granada Hills Charter

2016 stats: Didn’t do anything.

2017 projections: There are not really high expectations for Onwualu this year. He should be just a reserve.

How did he get here?: He entered as a walk-on in January of 2017. Onwualu did not receive any Division I offers.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Not much... rude.

Twitter feed: @SeanOnwualu

Tweets of wonder: That’s a very good question, Sean.

What movie would Dino Babers recommend for him?: The 1985 family comedy, The Goonies. Yes, I know what you’re about to say, but it stars Sean Astin and is written by Steven Spielberg. It centers around a group of misfit children who embark on an adventure to save their families’ home from foreclosure.

Interesting nugget o’interest: His cousin, Obum Gwacham, is currently a defensive end for the New Orleans Saints. I guess football runs in the family.

Let’s get a good look atcha: Last year, he actually worked as a football analyst for Citrus TV. Now, he gets to test his skills on the field.
