49ers Newest DL Kemoko Turay

Originally from Guinea, Turay and his family immigrated to the United States when he was just three years old. In high school, his family encouraged him to stay focused on basketball and his academics, as he would be the first in his family to graduate. However, Turay’s high school coaches convinced his family that he should pursue football because of his natural athletic talents and the chance of receiving a full-ride scholarship to college.

In just one year of high school varsity football, Turay recorded a state-leading 10 sacks and 105 tackles, eventually committing to Rutgers University.
