Since the first film from his senior season came out earlier this fall, Southfield, Mich., offensive tackle Chukwuma Okorafor has seen college interest increase. One of the most recent offers comes from Iowa.
"They offered me last week Friday," Okorafor said of Iowa. "I might go check them out sometime in December. As of now, nothing official is set. I probably will not be able to make it [this weekend]."
Okorafor is committed to Western Michigan, but has pulled in offers from Arkansas, Florida, Virginia and Iowa in the last month. He is still weighing out whether to visit those schools or stick with his pledge to the Broncos.
"I haven't set anything up yet because I have been pretty busy," Okorafor said. "If I choose to visit somewhere, I will set it up. Right now I am still in between taking officials or not."
The interest from new schools does not appear to be ceasing any time soon, as Okorafor continues to draw interest from BCS programs.
"N.C. State will probably offer me soon," Okorafor said. "I will probably call them sometime tomorrow. They said they need offensive tackles and think I might be able walk in and [contribute] once I get there."
Outside of Western Michigan, Okorafor said he is most focused on Arkansas, Florida, Iowa and Maryland. His teammate, four-star defensive end Malik McDowell, is looking at a possible official visit to Florida the weekend of Nov. 29, but Okorafor does not expect to be joining him on that trip.
"I probably won't be able to make it because Thanksgiving weekend is more family time," Okorafor said.
