A few days after extending his list to seven schools, it looks like it's back to six for Midwest City (Okla.) Carl Albert four-star running back David Oku.
The nation's No. 79 player recently added Nebraska to his list, along Florida State, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio State, USC and Tennessee.
But after doing some more research and without an offer from them yet, Oku said the USC Trojans are going to slip off his list.
"I want to go to a school where I can compete for day one, and USC doesn't have that," Oku said.
"I'm not cutting them because I don't have an offer. I'm just looking for somewhere I can compete from day one when I step on campus. USC is a great school that's one of the best in the nation in everything they do, but I don't think the situation would be best for me at this point."
Oku, who does have offers from numerous teams but doesn't have them from either Ohio State or USC in his top list, said the recent addition of Nebraska to his top six gives him a good group to look hard at over the summer months.
"Nebraska is a school I really think will be back to old form," Oku said.
"So it's all the same in my interest in all the schools, except for USC. I think all the schools in my top six have something that I really like and can see myself playing at each place.
"Now, I just have to do more research and find that right place."
