There has been a big change in the recruiting process for Sugar Land (Texas) Fort Bend Dulles cornerback Ugo Okpara.
Okapra, the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, found out this past week that an offer had come in from Miami. After speaking with coach Tommie Robinson and Wesley McGriff, it appears that the Canes have taken over the top spot with a possible decision on the horizon.
"Well I got an offer from Duke and then I recently found out about the one from Miami," Okpara said. "I'm real excited about Miami. I was looking for a big college football program and I know Miami has that. I also knew coach McGriff because he was my brother's coach at Baylor."
Okpara had Oklahoma State as his one time leader, but the new offer from Miami has changed that.
"Oklahoma State is a great place to play, but I'd have to say Miami is on top more than likely," Okpara said. "That's an opportunity that would be hard to pass up. Basically I'm still narrowing it down though right now."
Though the Houston-area prospect says that he's still looking at a number of different factors before committing, he didn't rule out an early decision possibly in the near future.
"It really depends on when I get a chance to talk to the Miami coaches again and depending on how that goes, I could decide in a week," Okpara said. "If not then, I know for a fact that I'll decide before our season starts. It all depends on how things go talking with the coaches over the next couple of days."
Okpara had also picked up scholarship offers from Virginia, Rice, and Baylor.
