Arizona is the only power-conference team among the finalists for the 6-foot-1, 222-pound Ossai, whose older brother Joseph Ossai led the Texas Longhorns with 90 tackles last season as a sophomore. The others are Group of Five members Air Force, Army, Louisiana-Lafayette, North Texas and UTSA as well as FCS schools Fordham and Missouri State.
Ossai is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 1,198 player in the 2021 recruiting class, as well as the 48th-best inside linebacker and the No. 181 prospect from Texas. A two-sport athlete at Oak Ridge High School, he has two older brothers playing linebacker in college, as Phillip Ossai is entering his second year at Houston Baptist.
Arizona currently has 11 commitments for 2021, giving it the No. 65 class in the country and No. 6 among Pac-12 schools.
