The Golden Bears got plenty of JUCO defensive line talent that will probably help them in the upcoming years, but they also needed to get players that will help ensure they have talent that will play for three to four years instead of one to two.
Kennedy Emesibe hails from Hesperia (Ca.) Oak Hills, measuring in around 6'3-6'4 and weighs around 235-240 pounds. Emesibe has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Mississippi State, and Washington State. Emesibe can play on both the outside and the inside of the defensive line, and has an excellent motor that should provide relentlessness on the defensive front.
Here are the rankings on Emesibe from each of the recruiting services.
