Tulsa (Okla.) East Central strongside defensive end Chris Todd might be the most overlooked and under-hyped player in the state of Oklahoma. But while fans and reporters might be ignoring his talent, the college coaches are very aware of his ability.
The 6-foot-2, 276-pound Rivals.com two-star prospect has picked up a couple new scholarship offers in the September calling period and is working his way toward more.
“I’ve talked to Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado, Colorado State, Tulsa and Kansas on the phone,” Todd said. “I already had offers from Colorado State and Tulsa, but now I have new offers this month from Arkansas and Kansas.”
Todd, who has already recorded five sacks in three games and was dominating against Oklahoma power Tulsa Booker T. Washington, said he’s enjoying the process and enjoying talking to the coaches.
“They all talk about their school and their football team,” Todd said. “They always ask me if I have any questions, and I ask them about the school and why they think they have a great program and where I would fit in there at.”
Todd said he’s not been able to attend any games yet this season. He was supposed to be in Norman at least twice this season, but couldn’t get a ride last weekend for the UCLA game and weather kept him away from the Sooners’ season-opener. But it’s going to be tough to keep Todd away from any school at this point because he’s very wide open about his recruiting.
“Right now, I’m not really looking to visit anybody for sure,” he said. “I’m just worried about the season, but once I’m past that, I’ll begin to think about places I want to see and teams I want to check out for sure.”
