Conference important to Awuzie

Chidobe Awuzie has five offers but he has not set up any official visits yet and those will be crucial in the decision-making process for the San Jose (Calif.) Oak Grove cornerback.
The 6-foot, 180-pound prospect lists offers from San Diego State, San Jose State, Utah, Utah State and Washington State and said he's leaning toward playing in the Pac-12 since it's such a prestigious conference.
"All the Pac-12 schools stand out," Awuzie said.

"It's pretty much those schools because they play in a conference that's really competitive and there is very high talent. That's where I'd like to play."
Three schools in particular - Washington State, San Diego State and UCLA - are showing the most interest in Awuzie, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, and he's looking to set up visits soon.
Those trips will be important as the Northern California prospect figures out which situation is best for him.
"I'll probably do both," Awuzie said. "I'll take some visits during the season and some after the season.
"It will be really important. I want to see how I can fit into their system, the kind of people that are there and how I am with the team."
Awuzie earned the defensive back MVP award at the National Underclassmen Combine in Los Angeles and he looked good at the Passing Down 7on7 event held in Central California this summer.
He also attended Cal's camp and the NIKE Camp at Oregon.
