LB Brian Asamoah

Oklahoma | RS Junior | Round 3, Pick 66

Asamoah's (pronounced ah-suh-MO-uh) family came to the United State from Ghana in 2000 and eventually settled in Columbus, Ohio. But instead of signing with the Buckeyes after a strong two-way career at St. Francis De Sales High School, he chose the Sooners. As a redshirt freshman, Asamoah played in all 14 games as a reserve (23 tackles, 3.5 for loss, with two sacks). He then started nine of 11 appearances in 2020, garnering honorable mention All-Big 12 notice by leading the team with 66 tackles (5.5 for loss with two sacks, one interception, four pass break-ups). Asamoah was a second-team all-conference selection in his final year in Norman, leading his squad with 90 tackles (four for loss) and forcing two fumbles in 12 games (10 starts). He opted out of the team's bowl game to prepare for the NFL Draft. -- by Chad Reuter,
