According to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, Acheampong is the No. 17 ATH in the nation and the No. 298 overall prospect regardless of position.
Acheampong is a unique player due to his size and skillset, but his uniqueness as a Division I recruit has another level. Acheampong has not played a football season since 2019 after his high school had the football program eliminated due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is a glimpse at what Acheampong did on the football field as a freshman in 2019:
