Okereke still not sure of decision

Bobby Okereke is still weighing his options, considering some more official visits and still has not decided whether he will decide before his senior season or wait a while longer.
Cal, Northwestern, Oregon, Stanford, USC, Vanderbilt and Washington are the favorites for the tight end out of Tustin (Calif.) Foothill but others are also getting involved as well, further complicating his decision.
"We're still looking at those schools," Okereke said. "Other schools like UCLA and Nebraska have shown interest but I'm still looking at those main schools that I've listed.
"I'm trying to set up some official visits to the schools I haven't visited yet. I've been talking to Vanderbilt and Oregon and they've shown they want me to come on official visits."
The timetable for a decision is still undecided.
Okereke, a 6-foot-3, 215-pound three-star prospect who has seen his recruitment take off this summer, said he doesn't know whether to commit early or wait things out to see what else could happen in his recruitment.
Since there are still so many outstanding programs involved, Okereke isn't sure what he's going to do.
"We're still deciding," Okereke said.
"There are all kinds of factors going into that. Going into my senior season it would be nice to already be committed and have that stress off. The recruiting process is a once-in-a-lifetime thing so I'm not going to rush it."
Especially since new offers are coming in all the time.
Offers from USC and Oregon were surprises in the last few weeks and a trip to Stanford paid off. Okereke wasn't sure if he was going to head to Stanford but once he did, he landed the Cardinal offer and he's happy he did.
"It was nice," Okereke said. "It was a great experience. The camp was well-structured and I learned a lot from the coaches. The tour was beautiful as well."
