Derrick Otim was born on March 21, 1996, he is an attacking midfielder who is a massive goal scoring threat from anywhere thanks to a good right foot. Lethal from outside the box or inside, he is accurate if given a glimmer of space. He also has good ball control and good strength to hold off defenders to get forward into the box and finish. In attack, he is a calm presence on the ball and able to control the game in the center. He is also good in transition and makes the right pass when getting forward. Otim is a former Nottingham Forest youth player and is currently set to graduate from Xavier University as a four-year starter.
The news of his death was seen across the social media, but it is still uncertain as no reliable sources are talking about it.
