Denton (Texas) Ryan safety Ishie Oduegwu had tried to commit to three schools last month, but he was having a little difficulty in reaching coaches. Where does the recruitment of the Texas Top 100 member sit?
“Ishie has not committed to anyone,” Ryan coach Joey Florence said. “He and I talked about it when we were getting ready for our season to start. We both felt it was best for him to just wait until he is done with his season and look things over then.”
The four-star rated Oduegwu had wanted to commit to LSU, but the defending national champions had already filled up at safety. Next was Kansas State. The defending Big 12 Conference champions had not extended a scholarship offer. Oduegwu then turned to Nebraska and new coach Bill Callahan.
“I know he was trying to reach them at one point,” Florence said. “I don’t know if he ever talked to them or not. I do know he did not commit to them. He is just backing away from things right now. There is no rush for him. He is a very quality player who will have a lot of opportunities when he’s done playing this year. He’s a big-time player and there are a lot of coaches who will see that when they get the chance to see him play this fall.”
Oduegwu will take all of his visits at the conclusion of his season.
“I want him to go see places and learn as much about the schools as he can. After that, then he can sit down and look over his options and then make his decision.”
