It was only going to be a matter of time before the offer count started to skyrocket for one Mesquite (Texas) Horn prospect Olaitan Oguntodu.
Many people are familiar with his teammate Mon Williams, the No. 83 overall prospect in the nation and a member of the Rivals100 list. However, the 6-foot-1, 200-pound Oguntodu, a safety prospect with all the tools, is starting to catch up to his friend's offers.
"As of now, I have nine offers," Oguntodu said about his current offer situation. "Boston College, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Wyoming, and Houston were the latest to offer."
Kansas, Baylor, SMU, and UTEP were his first four and now the next five have really started to make him a very hot commodity. However, you wouldn't get that impression from talking to the very humble Oguntodu.
"I'm not into playing the game, talking myself up, getting up all the hype and I don't want to commit to a school just because I'm a fan," Oguntodu said. "I want what's best for me academically as well as athletically."
Academics is very big for the dynamic defender, rated the No. 62 overall prospect in the state of Texas, because he plans to be done with high school in December. Whichever team he chooses, will have him for next year's spring practices.
A few schools have already caught his eye.
"Right now I really like Kansas because I've met coach (Mark) Mangino, and then also coach Mike Gundy from Oklahoma State is great," Oguntodu said. "Boston College has great academics which is something I'm looking for in a college."
Oguntodu will narrow things down with his parents and have a decision made after that sometime in the early fall.
Some visits are up next.
"I'm going to visit Kansas and Oklahoma State," he said. "I was going to go see Houston because my sister goes to school there, but I don't know if I will now or not."
"I camped at Tulsa too, but with summer school I haven't had the chance to do any others."
