Her coach in an interview published on had this to say about her;

It has been a privilege to see how this young lady has opened up her career her at UTEP, Tobi is not only a great athlete, but an excellent student as well. We couldn’t have really asked for much more from a freshman student-athlete.

During the recruiting process, we were told that she is the ‘next Blessing Okagbare. When this skinny little girl arrived at UTEP this January, it was kind of difficult to visualize her dominating her competitors the way Blessing did. Now, after her first season here, she has definitely made me a believer.

Tobi Amusan is said to have won nine events as a freshman between the long jump, 100m hurdles and the 4x100m relay, she is now being prepared for the IAAF U20 Championships.
