Godwin Igwebuike – SS – Northwestern

Three-year starter from Pickerington, OH. Physical prospect with size and good strength for the position. Has some linebacker qualities. Tracks and adjusts well moving downhill, reacting well to the run. Makes a lot of plays close to the line. A sure fundamentally sound tackler. Makes the big hit and finishes. Physical taking on blocks and can shed with good leverage while maintaining his path to the ball. At his best in run support. A little stiff in some movements and is not extremely fluid in his pedal. However he has good playing speed and covers a lot of ground in pursuit. Solid in zone coverage, sticks to responsibility with good awareness and the ability to react to multiple receivers in a zone. Sees the threats and reacts. Plays quarters coverage very well and is solid in the deep zones. Above average change of direction. Adjusts well to make plays in space. Match up ability as a result of good fundamental technique and enough speed to stay with a receiver. Effective in the short zones.
