Five-star OLB Owen Pappoe opened up to 247sports about his big-time recruitment over the weekend, as the Grayson linebacker worked at Cam Newton’s 7-on-7 camp roaming the field in impressive fashion.
The linebacker revealed his top 10 schools back in May with Florida, Clemson, Tennessee, LSU, Ohio State, Florida State, Georgia, Nebraska, Auburn, and Alabama making the cut.
There may be two leaders for Pappoe now, though, according to the 247sports:
“Based on the intel I’ve gathered, I’m hearing a commitment may be after the season. Based on sources I’ve spoken with, Clemson leads for Pappoe’s pledge. Florida State is running second. The Tigers and ‘Noles are recruiting Pappoe to play the same position.”
This makes a lot of sense, especially when you look at 247sports’ Crystal Ball predictions that give FSU the best odds right now at 53 percent and Clemson at 33 percent.
It certainly looks as though it may come down to the two powerhouse programs for the best OLB in the country.
Pappoe is the No. 6 overall recruit in the class of 2019.
