Houston commit making camp plans

366245
Houston offensive tackle commit Mickey Okafor has continued to add scholarship offers, despite the fact that he remains on the board for the Cougars 2007 recruiting class.
Central Florida was the most recent to offer the 6-foot-6, 290-pound Okafor. That offer is right alongside ones in hand from Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and Kansas State. Baylor, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma have told Okafor that seeing him at a camp is the only obstacle in the way of more offers. As of now, he's got a few camps he plans on going to.
"I'm going to the UTEP camp tomorrow and I know I'm going to go up to Oklahoma State," Okafor said. "Then I'm also going to head up to OU as well. When they see me at these camps, they said they already know that they're going to offer. It's just a matter of showing up. I've put on weight too and I'm up to 300 pounds."
Okafor says that Oklahoma State is by far the hardest recruiting team on his list.
"They send me all kinds of stuff," Okafor said. "It's text messages, letters, and they said I'm the top offensive lineman on their board."
Despite lots of attention, it's Texas Tech that Okafor holds in highest regard other than Houston.
"That's a good program and a very good place to be," Okafor said. "I've got an offer from them now and I'm looking at them really hard."
Regardless, Okafor says he has remained committed to Houston because of not only the coaching staff but location.
"My family is here in Houston and that's big with me," Okafor said. "I like the coaches a lot there too. I just have a good relationship with them."
