Uzebu has tremendous size and length, and has the athleticism to make him an elite offensive tackle. Junior will most likely redshirt his freshman season as a West Virginia Mountaineer, as most offensive linemen do, but should be able to make a push for the two-deep in the season that follow.

Uzebu chose West Virginia over offers from Syracuse, Maryland and NC State.
