Imeokparia transfers schools

Running back Ed Imeokparia hasn't played for Newark, Dela. this season. That's because the 5-foot-11, 189-pounder transferred in to his new school in New Jersey.
"I'm now attending Blair Academy in Blairstown, New Jersey," he said. "I'm looking forward to finally getting on the field because this is my first game with them coming up this week.
"I made the change because it was a personal thing. There was nothing bad with my old school it was just the best decision for me. So far the new school is nice, they have a nice campus and I'm getting along with the team."
The two-star prospect plans to play both ways for Blair Academy.
"I'm looking to start both ways at running back and cornerback for them," he said. "They run a little bit of a different offense. They run the wishbone and I kind of like it because it opens up the doors for a running back to take advantage. It'll get me out in space and that's where I feel I play best."
On the recruiting front, Imeokparia is receiving a lot of interest, but still only has two offers from Colorado and Michigan State.
"I'm expecting to see more, it's just a matter of getting more tape out," he said. "Once I get a few games done this season I'll be able to see more from the schools.
"Georgia, Florida State, Auburn and several other schools are very interested in me based on my camp performances this summer. They are all saying they need some game tape as soon as possible. Right now I'd say those are the schools I'm most interested in. I especially like the schools in the south."
One of the programs appears to have a slight edge over the others.
"I'd say Georgia stands out," he said. "I've developed a great relationship with Tony Ball and I like the depth chart there. The staff seems like a good group of guys that cares about their players and they are in the running for a national championship."
