Midwest City (Okla.) Carl Albert running back David Oku is on a roll.
The 5-foot-8, 176-pound running back opened up his junior season with a monster game against Tulsa's mighty Booker T. Washington. He rushed for 294 yards and four scores, and then just days after the game he started to receive his first official scholarship offers in writing.
"I've got six offers so far, but the ones that have come in writing are from Kansas State and OSU," Oku said. "Everybody is dealing with their seasons, so it may be a while before they all get here. I got a feeling that schools I've never heard from before are going to send in offers.

"This is starting to get really exciting."
Oku has oral offer from Auburn, Minnesota, Tennessee and Texas Tech to go along with the written ones. At this point, Oku is keeping things very open and isn't in a rush to make an early decision. He also hopes to hear more from Cal, Florida State, Ohio State and Texas A&M, but isn't limiting it to anybody.
"It's still early but I'm going to go where I feel comfortable with," Oku said.
"That's basically what I'm looking for. I want to make sure I have the best offense and everything for me. Like I tell everybody, whatever is the best for me, I'll take it. If it's Oklahoma, I'll take it. If it's OSU, I'll take it. But, at the same time, I wouldn't mind leaving home. I'm open to about every option that is going to be presented to me."
