2. Jonathan Kongbo, DE
Much like Darrell Taylor, Jonathan Kongbo hasn’t lived up to the hype that surrounded him during his recruitment. Taylor didn’t have significant hype, but there were still expectations there. Kongbo, on the other hand, was hailed as a physical freak who could come in and make a big impact immediately.
That never happened, though. And the former four-star JUCO player has yet to stand out.
Kongbo worked hard on his body and conditioning this offseason, and he’s looked like a different player this spring. Will his effort in drills and team activities pay off in games? Will Kongbo look like even half the player many expected him to be when he takes the field this Saturday?
