St Paul, Minn. Cretin-Derham four star ranked offensive line prospect Rafael Eubanks (6-foot-3, 290 pounds) has added two more scholarship offers under his belt, and Eubanks also now has more strong contenders to consider this fall.
“I received calls late last week from both the coaches at Notre Dame and Oklahoma," Rafael Eubanks said. "I was able to have a really good conversation with both staffs, and after our talks both schools offered me a scholarship."
Eubanks talks about his newest offers.
"I'm really excited about both offers from Notre Dame and Oklahoma. My parents and I are really thrilled that two fine schools and programs think enough of me to offer me a chance to play for them. It's really an honor to have offers from both schools. These latest offers definitely give me something additional to think about and to consider. It's like throwing two more huge logs onto the fire."
So will the Irish and the Sooners crack Eubanks favorite schools list?
"That's a really good question, and it's something that I just can't answer right now. My favorites remain Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Stanford, Maryland, Miami (Fla.) and Tennessee, yet I'm also going to give both Notre Dame and Oklahoma some serious consideration as well. It seems like my favorites are expanding instead of being narrowed down at this point."
"I've been really loyal to the schools that have been there all along, and I still somewhat feel that way, but on the other hand I also need to consider all of my options at this point. I've set just one official visit so far to Iowa, and for now that's all I'm going to set until I can get a better feeling for my remaining favorites. I know that I won't take any official visits during the season, that's just too hard for me to be able to pull off."
Eubanks is also hoping to turn around his team's latest two game losing streak.
"I'm disappointed in our last two games, and I wish I had an answer for how we've lost those games. All I know is that this team won't quit, and we'll try to get back on track this week against Hopkins."
