With the season having ended for most prospects and college coaches allowed to be on the road recruiting, it is the time of year that a few previously overlooked players usually come out of seemingly nowhere.
That is exactly the case with Frisco (Texas) Liberty offensive lineman Toye Adewon. The 6-foot-4, 285-pound senior was not even receiving interest just a few weeks ago but has not picked up a handful of scholarship offers.
"I picked up a couple offers this week and last week," Adewon said. "Utah State, Utah, Indiana, Kansas and some DI-AA schools have all offered me.
"I'm also getting a lot of interest from Oregon State and Rice. Those are really the two main ones right now."
Adewon says the attention was completely unexpected but he is at least somewhat aware of why it has all come so suddenly.
"I guess there was some senor video that was sent out to some coaches," he said. "I honestly don't even know who sent it, if it was my coach or what, but things have gotten sort of crazy here in the past couple of weeks. I really hadn't even been talking to any of those schools before they just offered me.
"I haven't had any coaches visit my house yet. I'm going to have a couple this month and in January. I don't know exactly when just yet."
One thing that seems to impress recruiters about Adewon is his versatility. He could play a number of spots at the next level.
"I play tackle, guard and center at Liberty," he said. "Everybody seems to be looking at me as either a center or guard. I think some coaches like that I have played center so I wouldn't have to adjust to there."
With the recruiting process having just begun for Adewon it is no surprise that he says no schools are currently standing out.
"They all are in different ways," he said. "I really haven't chosen a favorite though."
