Owen Pappoe (Loganville, GA) is the No. 1 linebacker in the 2019 class and the No. 4 player overall, and on Sunday night he announced that he had pared his recruitment down to 10 teams.

He released his list via Twitter.

Pappoe (6-1 201) is one of the most sought-after players in the nation, regardless of position or class. Last summer as a rising sophomore he became the youngest player ever invited to Nike’s The Opening. He has performed very well in a combine environment, having been timed at a 4.57 40-yard dash and a 4.01 20-yard shuttle.

In two seasons of varsity football, he has nearly 200 tackles. He lives just 30 minutes away from the University of Georgia campus, which is going to make the Bulldogs tough to beat.

You can see his athleticism displayed in the highlights below.
