Five-star defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa (6-3, 245, 4.7) from Portland (Ore.) David Douglas is attracting the kind of attention you would expect a player of his ability to attract. Not only is Odighizuwa being with double teams, but offenses are also running away from him.
"I have taken one official visit," Odighizuwa said. "I visited Cal when they played USC. I thought it was a pretty cool visit. I really like Cal's coaches and their players."
Does Odighizuwa have any other visits planned?
"I will be visiting UCLA this weekend (Nov. 6th)," Odighizuwa said."I will be visiting Florida when they play Florida State. Nebraska, maybe November 21st and USC. I don't have a date for USC, but it will probably be after the football season."
"I don't have any favorites right now."
What does Odighizuwa like about the five schools that he will visit?
"With Cal I really like (defensive line coach) Tosh Lupoi a lot," Odighizuwa said. "And I like Cal's academics.
"I like UCLA's coaching staff and like Cal their academics are really good," Odighizuwa said. "I haven't been down to Pasadena or Westwood yet so I'm looking forward to that."
"With Florida it is a lot of things," Odighizuwa said. "I like their coaches. I like coach Urban Meyer and coach Dan McCarney. I really like what Florida is doing with their defense.
"I like Nebraska's defensive line coach (John Papuchis)," Odighizuwa said. "I like what they have done with Portland (Ore.) native, Ndamukong Suh.
"I like USC's coaching staff," Odighizuwa said. "I also like USC's reputation and their academics."
I'm looking to make my announcement around December," Odighizuwa said. "I may just make my announcement during the U.S. Army All-American game."
Odighizuwa earned a spot on the Rivals.com Rivals100 for the class of 2010. He is ranked as the nation's No. 20 prospect at any position. He was also selected to the Rivals.com Oregon Midseason Top 10 landing as the Beaver State's No. 1 prospect at any position.
