Michigan State Spartans
As a Recruit
Bai Jobe moved to the United States in 2018 from his homeland of Senegal with dreams of playing in the NBA. However, the coaching staff at Norman Community Christian convinced him to give football a try. It was a test Jobe passed with flying colors. As a junior, he racked up 16.5 sacks and led the team to a 9-3 record. “We lined him up at defensive end and told him just chase the ball,” Norman Community Christian coach Mat McIntosh said. Jobe said he learned a lot about football by watching YouTube videos. “Even though I don’t know everything about football I know a lot because I started to go to YouTube and Google and stuff like that,” Jobe said. Local orthopedic surgeon James L. Bond and his wife Susan are Jobe’s host family. His father is Lamin Jobe. His mother, Ndeye Jallow, passed away shortly after he arrived in the U.S. Jobe plans on majoring in business management.
