Saturday’s rivalry game between the sixth-ranked Wolverines (10-1) and fourth-ranked Ohio State (10-1) in Ann Arbor will be extra special for Ojabo as it will be the first time that his parents have seen the redshirt sophomore play in-person.

Born in Nigeria, Ojabo moved to Aberdeen, Scotland, in 2007 before coming to the United States to attend New Jersey’s Blair Academy, where he played soccer and basketball as a sophomore.
