Sachse (Texas) running back Devine Ozigbo currently holds scholarship offers from Miami, Iowa, Utah, Tulsa, and UTSA, and has been receiving significant attention from several others.
Recently the 5-foot-11, 215-pound back returned from his latest visit to Miami, and it is safe to say the Hurricanes left a favorable impression.
"It went well," Ozigbo said. "I liked it out there. It was real nice."
Before the visit, he mentioned the possibility the Hurricanes could jump up to the top of his list. So did they?
"I really liked the visit, and I really liked the campus and stuff," Ozigbo said. "But I really want to take all my visits first before I release a front runner."
In addition to the Hurricanes, Ozigbo also visited the Tulsa Golden Hurricane program, as well as a few others.
"I went to Oklahoma State, I went to North Texas, and I plan on going to UTSA's spring game on the 26th," Ozigbo said. "I plan on going up to Iowa. Plus this spring is coming up, so hopefully I should get more offers and more opportunities and make some plans for those schools as well."
Iowa has been showing the most attention at this point, and there is one Big 12 program who has not offered yet that is staying in close contact.
"I've heard some things from OU," Ozigbo said. "They've offered a couple of guys and they want to see how things go. My area recruiter, he's been talking to me, he's been making it sound like if things don't work out I should be the next one."
Ozigbo does not know when but he would like to make an "early" decision. He is not ready to name a favorite out of his current options, but he does know what he is looking for in a future program.
"First off the education because football does not last forever, and second probably the type of offense," Ozigbo said. "Actually, like at my high school we run a spread so if we run a spread it wouldn't be a problem and if we went to the I that would be better, but I feel like I can play in either offense. Then the coaching staff and the character of the people and how comfortable I feel when I get on campus."
As a junior in 2013, Ozigbo earned first-team all-district honors after rushing for 933 yards and 13 touchdowns to help Sachse to an 11-1 record and an 11-5A district championship.
