Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-Conference USA in 2016 and 2017. Made 29 tackles (seven for loss) with 5.5 sacks as a senior. Recorded 44 tackles (10 for loss), seven sacks and two forced fumbles as a junior. Posted 36 tackles (six for loss) and 4.5 sacks in 2015. Made two starts and tallied 30 tackles (2.5 for loss) and two sacks as a true freshman after walking on.
Pos: 
Incredibly athletic pass rusher with outstanding movement skills. Fires off the snap, plays with terrific pad level and displays good change of direction. Immediately alters his angle of attack, displays speed in pursuit and chases the action hard. Gets a lot of force going up the field and can be tough to handle. Keeps his feet moving and his hands active.
Neg: 
Lacks natural bulk and strength. Handled at the point of attack. Gives effort defending the run but is often sealed away from the action.
Analysis: 
Rotimi is an explosive edge rusher with growth potential and a good amount of upside. He needs to improve his playing strength and refine his game but offers possibilities as a defensive end in a four-man line.
