 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Prince Tega Wanogho came to Alabama wanting to be the next LeBron James. He became Auburn's left tackle instead. Wanogho now is the anchor of the 16th-ranked Tigers' all-senior offensive line, some five years after he stepped on a football field for the first time. A native of Delta State, Nigeria, Wanogho came to Alabama as a 16-year-old hoping to land a college scholarship - in basketball. He wound up at Edgewood Academy in suburban Montgomery after getting noticed at a basketball camp. Wanogho then obliged when an Edgewood coach suggested giving football a shot, but he didn't know much about the sport that is king in the state.

He played defensive end at about 225 pounds and quickly started getting interest from football programs, enough so that a reporter asked him if Alabama coach Nick Saban had visited. "I was like, 'Who's Nick Saban?' It's crazy, because everybody thought it was funny," said Wanogho, who also played soccer growing up. "My teammates and coaches. The dude that was doing the interview, he thought it was funny, too. He was shocked because I didn't know who coach Nick Saban was. When I said that, everybody was surprised. "I was like you can't blame me because I came all the way from Nigeria and I'm here playing a new game. I don't really know what goes on here. I didn't even really know how big it was at that time. The whole time I was being recruited, I didn't know how big that was." - AP College Football
