Owen Pappoe, Grayson
Height, weight: 6-1, 210
College choices: Committed to Auburn.
2017 season wrapup: Pappoe recovered from a hip injury that forced him to miss all of spring practice and went on to record 62 tackles, including nine for losses, and a fumble recovery. He was selected as a first-team all-state player in Class AAAAAAA and led Grayson to a 10-2 record. Pappoe is considered the nation’s top outside linebacker prospect and is rated as the No. 11 player overall.
School’s first Super 11 since: Deangelo Gibbs and Jamyest Williams in 2016.
What’s interesting: Nicknamed “The Freak,” Pappoe put up the second-highest testing score at this year’s The Opening, which brings together the nation’s top recruits, who are measured in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, shuttle run and kneeling power ball toss.
