Offers are starting to come in for Brooklyn (N.Y.) Thomas Jefferson defensive end Ebenezer Ogundeko. The 6-foot-4, 235-pounder landed his first two offers in recent weeks as interest is picking up.
"I've got two offers so far in the past two weeks," he said. "Syracuse and North Carolina A&T have offered. It's pretty good. I was hoping to get offered from Penn State, but I really like Syracuse and am very interested in Syracuse."
Ogundeko touched on the offer from the Orange.
"I'm going there for a junior day on April 21st," he said. "They have a few players that I played against and are pretty good."
Ogundeko noted interest from Penn State and Connecticut as well outside of thje offers.
Does he like any schools?
"Clemson," he said. "They have good defensive line coaching and I like what they did with Da'Quan Bowers, I think they could do what they did for him, the same for me."
A strong 3.5 GPA student, Ogundeko is looking for a few things in his future school.
"I'm looking to get my education and I want to be able to make it to the NFL. I'm hoping the school I pick has my major, architecture."
As a junior, Ogundeko earned second team all-city honors after posting 79 tackles and 11 sacks.
"I think I did well," he said. "I could have done better because I sprained my ankle the third game of the year.
"I think I have a good motor and I used my technique very wisely at defensive end."
