Georgia Football Recruiting: Chuma Edoga Receives Offer From Illinois


On May 6th, the Illinois Fighting Illini extended an offer to 2015 offensive tackle, Chuma Edoga.

Edoga has received offers from the Clemson Tigers, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Illinois Fighting Illini, and North Carolina Tar Heels. However, he is also receiving interest from the Georgia Bulldogs.

Chuma Edoga is a very physical blocker at the line and some of that can be attributed to his size and frame.

Edoga stands tall at 6’4″ and weighs a powerful 265 pounds.

He uses his size and big frame to push defenders down the field or to the outside. Defenders seems to need to use a lot of energy in order to “try” and get past Edoga.

The one spot where Edoga could improve is getting to the next level on blocks.

Sometimes, he forces his defender to the ground, but, instead of trying to stay on his feet in order to push forward, he falls down with the defender.

The 2015 recruit currently is not ranked by 247 Sports, Scouts, or Rivals.
