Max Wariboko doesn't speak for his brother even if some people would prefer he did. Still, the 2016 defensive back knows that the perception is out there. He knows that many believe he and his brother, four-star 2015 guard prospect Josh Wariboko, are hoping to play college football together.

Max Wariboko, who won't sign a letter of intent until February of 2016, already holds three scholarship offers. Joining UCLA on the list are Louisville and Tulsa. More schools are slowly moving in, however, and the Oklahoma City Casady School cornerback is hoping to earn a few more offers when he hits the team camp circuit this summer.
Already on the schedule are camps at Clemson and Oklahoma State. A Texas-based Oregon State camp may also be in the cards. The most recent addition, though, is an appearance at the school to which his brother was once committed.

But for now, Max Wariboko remains concerned with his most recent opportunity. The joy is apparent in his voice when he recounts the moment.
