Nwagwu attends McAdory High School in McCalla, Alabama. He now holds three offers after picking up an offer from Marshall Friday.
Long Island University was the first program to offer Nwagwu. Alabama State followed suit.
The junior hopes his early offers as a result of the hard work he has put in serve as motivation to others still hoping and grinding for an opportunity to chase their dreams.
“I have always had to overcome adversity my whole life because of my size, but everybody out there that’s smaller or undersized, just keep on working,” Nwagwu told Touchdown Alabama. “Keep your head straight and keep working.”
The Marshall Thundering Herd was one of the programs showing a lot of interest in Nwagwu before spring football started at McAdory.
Marshall jumped in on the long defensive back, but there are other programs looking to get out to McAdory to see the 2024 recruit work. Georgia State is one of those programs.
Nwagwu wants to impress coaches with his all-around game when they make their way to McCalla.
“I want to show how I can move, my ball skills and that I can get in and out of my breaks,” said Nwagwu. “I’m physical too.”
At 6-foot-2, Nwagwu has the length and the long arms college coaches are looking for at cornerback. He is a technically-sound corner, who can match up man-to-man on an island and carries his own. He is also a sound tackler, who makes effective tackles in open space.
