NAME: Amani Oruwariye

SCHOOL: Penn State


POSITION: Cornerback

CLASS: RS Senior

JERSEY: No. 21


HT: 6-1

WT: 204 lbs

D.O.B.: 2/9/1996

PROS: Has sublime body control for a player of his stature, repeatedly making extreme adjustments of his body from awkward positions to make a play on the football. Showcases an explosive bucket step when over-top of targeted receivers, closing distance with suddenness and rapidly taking away a rushing lane or throwing window. Oruwariye possesses excellent length, impressive wing span compliments frame and leaping ability for high point contests of the ball. Physical when stepping down towards the line of scrimmage to offer strong challenges on the ball carrier or receiver after the catch. Is difficult to block when in run support thanks to short area quickness, functional strength and size. Is most effective in tight alignment, where his backpedal can shine and allow him to stay in close quarters to receivers on route stems before driving to mirror the break.

CONS: Enters final season as a 35-game participant, yet no starting experience; has been weaned into more prominent role which will culminate with first season as a starter during RS Senior year in 2018. Feet, while balanced and controlled in backpedal, are not most naturally quick. Can improve ability to square up the ball by taking a more deliberate and preemptive pathway to the ball when pursing from a distance.
