Baylor has added to the roster for the 2020 football season by landing Kilgore College outside linebacker Victor Obi‍. Obi is to arrive at Baylor in June and will have four years to play three. He will count towards the 2020 class scholarship wise.

At 6-5 and 218 pounds at only 17 years old, Obi will come to Baylor with a very high ceiling and lots of potential for the future. He is slated to play the JACK outisde linebacker position under Coach Joey McGuire and be utilized in Coach Aranda’s most featured defensive roles.

He came to Baylor camp before his senior season of high school and measured at 6-4 and180 pounds. He tested extremely well with a 4.6-second 40-yard dash, a 35-inch vertical, and a 10-foot broad jump.

He doesn't seem to make a lot of plays in the video posted. I guess he's gained around 25-30 pounds since then. He's gonna need a lot of work of his techniques and skills.

Also, if he's only 17 he's possibly still growing and can put on a lot of muscle mass weight without losing speed and quickness.
