According to the industry-generated composite rankings, Okelo was a 3-star prospect out of Nashville, Tennessee. He was the No. 57 edge prospect nationally for the class of 2021.
Head coach Mel Tucker has things trending in the right direction heading into Saturday’s game with Nebraska, and it will be interesting to see if Okelo does indeed decide to move on.
