Okwuegbunam solid despite pressure
Springfield (Ill.) Sacred Heart Griffin athlete Albert Okwuegbunam says that he and his team are entering the playoff this week and are bringing with them a perfect record. The 6-foot-5 and 215-pound Okwuegbuna says that he is having a solid season personally, but isn't sure what his stats are.
"We are 9-0 and start our playoffs this week," Okwuegbunam said. "I don't know what my stats are for sure. I am doing pretty well. I am playing defensive end and wide receiver this year. We don't have a formation in our offense that uses a true tight end so I am playing wide receiver."
While Okwuegbunam is playing wide receiver in high school his position in college is really regarded more as a tight end, but will be as a hybrid tight end. Okwuegbunam says that what makes him a good hybrid target is that he has good size and great speed.
"I am being looked at to play the hybrid spot at the next level in college. I think that I have good size and speed at the position that makes me a good target. I have run a 4.5/40 before."
There are still some teams that are giving chase to Okwuegbunam and trying to get a visit from the talented receiver. He's not sure that he will take any visits. He says that the big reason is the offense that he can see himself in at Missouri. He did leave the door open, albeit slightly though, that if something were to change that he could see himself taking a visit then.
"I think that I am done," Okwuegbunam said. "I am not sure, but I think that I am done. Indiana and Nebraska are still pressing me to take a visit, but I like Missouri's offense. I don't see a reason to visit any other schools. If something were to change then I may consider it."
