Nwigwe (which I believe is pronounced "WIG-wee") is a 6-foot-4, 260 pound lineman. He is a two-star recruit with a 247Sports composite rating of .7533. Nwigwe had offers from SMU, BYU, Nevada, and New Mexico State.
Nwigwe is considered an under-recruited prospect, a talented lineman who didn't receive any offers until June of last year. BYU and SMU both offered him in early December, and he was believed to be leaning toward SMU before his visit to Provo.
As you can see in his highlights below, Nwigwe is powerful enough to stand his ground and agile enough to get out and plow the road in the run game. He is expected to play guard in college.
Here are some of Nwigwe's highlights from his Hudl profile:
