If you payed close attention to the 2016 Edition of The Nike Opening Finals, you were certainly blown away by one of the Top Prospects in the Nation for the Class of 2019, Owen Pappoe. Pappoe was one of the top competitors at The Opening Finals against student athletes over 2 years older than him. The 6-foot-1, 202lbs Outside Linebacker out of Grayson High School made a huge name for himself this past month, a reputation that we believe will only grow as the days go by.
24/7 Sports has ranked the young prospect out Loganville, Georgia as the #2 prospect in the 2019 Class, behind the LA Receiver, Kayvon Thibodeaux, however many experts believe that Owen is the most athletic prospect in the class.
At such a young age, Owen Pappoe already possesses a maturity and responsibility far beyond his years, leaving many to believe that he will be extremely successful when he eventually moves on to the NCAA level.
Owen Pappoa has the chance to do something no one else in the history of The Nike Opening has ever done. Seeing how he was invited and attended the opening as a Freshman, Pappoe can surpass athletes such as Najee Harris and Rashan Gary, who were both 2-Time attendees of the Nike Opening and become the first ever athlete to attend the Nike Opening 3 times in his High School Career. Although this possible achievement is not on his mind at the moment, it is absolutely astounding to think this could potentially happen.
If you’re reading this and don’t believe that this young man is the real deal, then hearing this next fact may change your mind. Actually, we can guarantee that this will change your mind. Owen “The Freak” Pappoe currently holds 33 offers. If that didn’t change your mind, it is 33 DIVISION 1 OFFERS. If you’re still unsure whether he’s the real deal, here’s a list of the schools Owen currently has Full Scholarship Offers from:
No, this isn’t Najee Harris’ offer list, or Jerry Jeudy, this is a Class of 2019 prospect with offers from just about every top team in the Nation. If that doesn’t open your eyes to the greatness of this kid, we don’t really know what will.
Owen is nicknamed “The Freak” for good reason, his comination of size, speed and strength make him one of the most polished and defined players in the nation in any class. His skillset as an outside backer is still very raw, but his willingness to learn and pick up what he is being taught will allow for him to develop faster and at a more advanced level than other athletes of his age.
