After appearing in 11 games with LSU in 2016, Okeke opted to transfer to Tennessee State the following season. He’s clearly got a thing for schools who have Tigers as their mascots. At Tennessee State, Okeke quickly established himself as a starter at left tackle. He plays heavy-handed and issues some punishing strikes to his opponents. He’s proved to be powerful...
