With one Pflugerville (Texas) High School prospect already on the board with offers, Zaviar Gooden, a second prospect has emerged.
Running back Greg Nwoko, the 6-foot-2, 213-pound prospect, had a solid showing at the NIKE Training Camp in Fort Worth last month. Now, the talented prospect has his first written scholarship offer in hand from New Mexico State and several other schools could be on the verge of sending one as well.
"The only written one I have is New Mexico State, the rest have said it should be on the way," Nwoko said. "Nebraska, Arkansas, Texas A&M, and UTEP are the other ones. But, I'm staying open right now. That's all I'm doing. I'm just going to wait and see.
"I'm not going to decide anytime soon. I'm just going to wait on that."
Nwoko says that his family would like him to stay close to home, but he's keeping his options open in terms of school location. He says that solid academics will also be a factor in his decision.
Many schools that are recruiting him like him at the running back position, but Nwoko says that schools such as Colorado and Oklahoma State have talked about "a lot of different positions."
"I'm a power back," he said. "I have speed too. But, I usually like to run through tackles."
Nwoko was a first-team all-district selection as a junior.
