205 tackles including 37 TFL and 14 sacks in the past 2 seasons.
Ojulari has excelled in pre-snap reads, understanding where the ball is going. He said the art of getting tackles is all about positioning. “It’s just about being able to fight off blocks and reading plays. Also, my teammates put me in a good position to make a lot of tackles.” Ojulari uses strength to his advantage, which he has used to create a home in opposing backfields. He packs quickness and finesse in his arsenal, which are both dangerous for opposing offensive linemen. Dynamite Dozen: Marietta's Ojulari has knack of finding ball-carriers
What we like: In terms of athleticism and quickness, few do it better than BJ Ojulari. He has great burst off the snap, and he moves exceptionally well in space. He can run sideline-to-sideline very effectively, and he’s just as capable covering the flat and stopping the run as he is rushing the passer. He has great awareness and uses his long arms to disrupt plays you wouldn’t expect him to be able to get to. It always seems like Ojulari is in line to make a play for Marietta. He especially impressed at Nike’s The Opening Finals back in July not only with his athleticism and speed rush capabilities, but also with his instincts and improvement on technique. Ojulari also has some versatility, playing as both a stand up outside linebacker and a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end for Marietta. He’s an all-around exceptional player who should fit in well with what Tennessee wants to do on defense. Impact Report: 2020 OLB B.J. Ojulari | Rocky Top Insider
