Three-star wide receiver David Njoku took an official visit to Miami and the trip went better than he expected. Now Njoku has the 'Canes ahead for his services. The dead period is almost over, so the 6-foot-4 pass-catcher is working to check out other schools before signing day.
"There are a lot of schools looking at me right now," remarked Njoku. "I'm enjoying it. I'm taking things day-by-day and going one step at a time. My last official visit was to Miami. It was a great visit. All the coaches are amazing. Coach Golden, Coach D'Onofrio, and Coach Carroll are amazing and very down to Earth. I can talk to them about anything. After visiting them they grew on me."
Njoku plans on visiting Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and Connecticut in the coming weeks. He is slated to visit Columbus on January 17.
"I have two weeks to schedule my visits," noted Njoku. "Right now it's between Ohio State, Penn State, Rutgers, and UConn. Those are the schools where I feel most at home. Hopefully I can find what I'm looking for with them on my visits."
Over the weekend there were reports that Al Golden was a finalist for the Penn State job. Njoku was keeping a close eye on that situation. However, Golden removed his name from the search and will remain at UM.
"That would have helped Penn State a lot," responded Njoku. "Plus it's close to home. Coach Golden is one heck of a coach. That would have been big for me."
The Cedar Grove (N.J.) standout said he will likely announce around signing day.
