Alex Ofodile already has 14 scholarship offers, giving the 2015 wide receiver plenty of options to explore. He has plenty of traveling to do this offseason.
The Columbia (Mo.) Rock Bridge four-star prospect plans to check out as many schools as he possibly can during the offseason. For now, he has just two dates written in pen on his agenda.
"I only know two visits for sure," Ofodile said. "Oklahoma's junior day - that's Feb. 1. And then Indiana's is Jan. 26. Those two are for sure, but that's about it. I'm going to try to make it to all my offers, but those two are for sure."
The upcoming junior days represent Ofodile's first trip to the campus of each school. He's done some research, but seeing things in person should help the process exponentially. These types of visits will factor heavily when it comes time for the wide receiver to trim his list.
"Oklahoma has a former player that went to my high school that I'm pretty good friends with - Trey Millard," Ofodile said. "He talks to me about the positives. He says this is their off year and they still won 10 games. He talks to me about how much he likes Coach (Bob) Stoops, so that's a big positive."
Ofodile is a little bit less informed when it comes to Indiana. He's by no means going in blind, but there's plenty for the high school junior to learn about the Hoosiers. This round of visits is all about information gathering.
"They throw the ball around a lot," Ofodile said. "I know that. I was looking at some of the numbers. I obviously like that. The actually just had a guy declare for the draft, too. That's about it. We really just talk about the offense."
Ofodile says the next visits to be scheduled could be trips to Tennessee and North Carolina, but wasn't certain of that yet. He names no favorites in the process at this juncture.
The No. 138-ranked prospect in his class, Ofodile has family ties to Missouri, at which his father played.
