The offer from Ohio marks the sixth Football Bowl Subdivision scholarship on the table for the 6-foot-3, 250-pound Angeh, who is also considering Cincinnati, Western Michigan, U-Mass. and Temple, all of which have materialized this fall.
“I’m really taking time with the whole recruiting process,” Angeh said. “I’m a late bloomer. . . people didn’t find out about me until, like, late last year, this year.”
It has been a sharp ascent for Angeh during his senior season. He played three years at Blake before transferring to Bullis this fall, where he blossomed into one of the region’s most productive pass rushers. Angeh recorded 91 / 2 sacks and 21 / 2 tackles for loss and recovered two fumbles to lead Bullis to an 8-2 record.
Angeh will take his first official visit this weekend to U-Mass., which joined the MAC in 2012. He will stay in conference next weekend, when he take an official visit to Ohio, he said.
“I haven’t really narrowed it down, to be honest,” Angeh said.
Among the FCS suitors, Angeh is considering Fordham, Colgate, Richmond and Coastal Carolina, among others. He will try to take a few more visits in January before making his decision – but cited academics and location as the two most important factors in picking his destination.
Angeh also expects to play defensive end in college, although he proved this season to be a versatile defender who can play the role of a hybrid linebacker. Angeh led the team 71 tackles in 2012, 20 more than the second leading tackler.
“[No recruiter] has said anything about playing linebacker,” Angeh said, “But it’s not like it would be anything new for me.”
