Godwin Igwebuike (6-0, 190) RB

Igwebuike comes in listed as an athlete but according to an official release by NU, he will play running back. It’s really simple: Igwebuike is a big time playmaker. He’s a very instinctive runner and has tons of natural athletic ability. He displays good hands catching balls out of the backfield. He has outstanding vision and has a second gear that helps him break away from defenders. His ability to cut makes him nearly impossible to bring down in the open field. Once he finds that hole, Igwebuike is as good as gone and could be a huge contributor for NU soon.
