Personal Life

Samuel M'Pemba didn’t start playing football until he was in the seventh grade. “It was weird, but I was still just trying to figure things out and learn all the rules and stuff,” he said. M'Pemba transferred to IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., from St. Louis’ Ladue Horton Watkins High School before the 2021 season. M'Pemba helped Ladue Horton Watkins to the Missouri Class 4 state semifinals as a sophomore. His parents are Martial and Mimi. He has five siblings: PJ, Rolanda, Anne-Marie, Marie Grace and Akou. M'Pemba plans on majoring in business in college.

2022 Draft: Rnd 2 Pick 29
Samuel Mpemba has similar size, dimensions and on-field skill set as Drake Jackson at the same stage. Both checked in at a shade under 6-foot-3, 250-260 pounds with 34-inch arms and similar athleticism as high school prospects. Like Jackson, Mpemba is a strong, developmental pass rusher who may not have the high-end production profile at the high school level as some other top EDGE prospects.
