    MUST-GET PROSPECT, IMO.

    'm nearly positive you haven't heard of him and his modest three-star ranking as just the No. 24 defensive tackle in the country doesn't turn many heads, but I will be nothing short of furious if he doesn't end up in Columbus after reading his full story.

    Hero Kanu assumed the call on was merely an introduction. After all, Kanu had played in exactly one high school football game. The previous Friday, Kanu’s Santa Margarita (Calif.) Catholic team had opened its COVID-19-delayed season with a 54-16 win against Mayfair. The game itself was as fun as the 6-foot-4, 293-pound defensive tackle always imagined it would be when he watched American football on TV back home in Germany. When Kanu got on the phone with Washington assistant Rip Rowan on March 15, Kanu figured Rowan was establishing a relationship that — with a great spring season and a good camp circuit in the summer — might ultimately lead to a scholarship offer.

    Then Rowan stunned Kanu. “He said, ‘Hero, we’re offering you a full scholarship,’” Kanu said this week. Kanu had played well against Mayfair, blasting through blockers to make plays implode.

    ...

    How could he? Eighteen months ago, Kanu was a large kid in the small Bavarian town of Geltendorf (population: 5,600) who dreamed of playing a sport he’d only seen on television. Now he has offers from the aforementioned schools as well as Oregon, Michigan, Colorado, Arizona, Arizona State and TCU. How did he get here?

    Yes, he was offered a scholarship by multiple schools after playing one (1) high school football game. And after watching the tape, I get it!

    In my experience, coming back for an unplanned Day 2 means we're closing in on a commit. Kid has incredible potential, I'm sure LJ Sr is just salivating thinking about what he could turn Hero into. He's quickly jumped up to the top of my wishlist at DT in this class if we're talking realistic possibilities (Christen Miller is right there too). Let's close this one.
