2021 Draft: Rnd 2 Pick 20
Not only is Jaylen Sneed expected to assume the role in Notre Dame’s defense that made Owusu-Koramoah a star, but the two share many similarities as high school prospects. Owusu-Koramoah was 6-foot-1.5, 188 pounds as a high school prospect. Sneed is slightly heavier, checking in at 6-foot-1, and 205-210 pounds. Both were do-it-all players for their high schools. Owusu-Koramoah played receiver, quarterback, corner, safety and linebacker for Hampton (Va.) Bethel. Sneed lined up at quarterback, linebacker, safety and defensive end for Hilton Head Island (S.C.) Hilton Head. Both are twitchy athletes who play with a hair-on-fire effort level, running down plays from sideline-to-sideline. Owusu-Koramoah was known for his physicality at the college level. We saw Sneed similarly seek out and embrace contact at the Under Armour All-America Game. Both were also multi-sport stars. Owusu-Koramoah was an all-state basketball player. Sneed is an above-the-rim dunker on the hardwood and also a top shot put thrower.
