Ezekoye lands first BCS offer

The first BCS offer has come in for 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete Ndubisi Ezekoye. The Silver Spring (Md.) Kennedy star landed his third offer from the Big East.
"I got an offer from Connecticut," he said. "Connecticut was definitely showing me the most love and most interest during the whole recruiting process and to finally get that offer, it changes a lot. It makes everything that much easier.
"I like their program. It's strong obviously and they have a strong business program too. Both their offensive coordinator and defensive coordinator are from my old school, Central. Their coaches are top of the line too. They are ambitious and one of those programs you want to be apart of as an athlete."
Ezekoye holds two other offers from Air Force and Navy.
Who else is showing interest in the Maryland prospect?
"Schools showing me the most interest are Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Duke, Boston College and Syracuse."
Ezekoye hasn't mapped out his summer plans completely to date, but knows his first visit will be to Duke on June 13th.
Currently does he like anybody?
"I had a top school going in and my personal top is always Stanford, but as the recruiting process goes I've got Stanford, Duke, Notre Dame, Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Connecticut and Boston College up there. Those are all tops for me."
In other news, Ezekoye recently won the 3A 100 meter state championship.
"To go through a whole track season and see all your hard work pay off is nice," he said. "I was surprised. Devon Smith didn't run, but I ended up on top. I also helped our 4x1 team finish sixth overall."
Finally, Ezekoye landed an invite to the Maryland Crab Bowl after the season.
"They are slotting me as a receiver," he said. "It's a great opportunity and it should be fun playing with the rest of the 2010 class. Jeff Knox used to be my teammate at Central and he's going to play in it too. I'm thankful and blessed."
