Michael Onuoha, Charles Tapper coming along, but “aren’t ready for primetime yet”
“I like both of them,” Wright said. “Both of them are big, strong, physical guys that have some speed and show some pass rush capability. I really like where both of them are at this point.”
Seniors R.J. Washington and David King and sophomore Chuka Ndulue are the three players rotating in the most at defensive end. Onuoha has appeared in four games, with Tapper getting to play in five.
“Certainly they’re both very, very raw,” Wright said. “The sky’s virtually the limit for those guys.
“They need to have a great spring and a great winter, and then who knows? When they gain some physical maturity with added strength, added weight, it’s gonna enable them to play at a higher level.”
Tapper is from Baltimore, where he played at City College High School. He began playing football his junior year of high school.
