Ojabo had a breakout season for the Wolverines in 2021, ending with 35 tackles, 11 sacks, and 5 forced fumbles. After suffering said Achilles injury, Ojabo would slip into the 2nd round of the 2022 NFL Draft where the Ravens selected him with the 45th overall pick.
Ojabo’s 11-sack season ties him at 4th in Michigan history for sacks in a single season. Ojabo was awarded second-team All-American and first-team All-Big Ten for his outstanding 2021 season.
