BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign. Posted 52/13/6 as a senior after 44/7/4 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Athletic prospect who plays bigger than his listed size. Keeps his pads low to the ground, gets leverage on opponents and immediately alters his angle of attack. Stays with the action, strings plays laterally and tough to knock off his feet. Doubled by opponents yet holds his ground against blocks. Works his hands nicely, chases around the field to get involved in the action and wraps up opposing ball handlers. Plays with a nasty attitude and gets a good amount of momentum going up the field.
NEGATIVES: Not quick or explosive off the snap and lacks speed to the flanks. Lacks bulk and slow getting off blocks. Not as productive as scouts would have hoped and labeled as a bit of an underachiever.
ANALYSIS: A potential two-gap lineman who could also be used at the left defensive end position, Awasom possesses good upside for the next level. Plays a priority position and should be selected in the middle rounds yet must pick up the intensity to have any shot of sticking at the next level.
