Defensive tackle Kebin Umodu (6-2, 245, 5.0) from West Covina (Calif.) South Hills has been getting a lot of attention this spring and received his first written offer back in February and recently received his second of what appears to be more on the way.
Umodu received his first written offer from Oregon and that one was followed by a scholie opportunity from Utah. There is more where that came from.
"Everyone and anyone is recruiting Kebin." South Hills' assistant coach in charge of recruiting James Escarcega said. "He's a qualifier and he can play. He took his ACT three weeks ago."

Besides Oregon and Utah; Arizona State, Oregon State, UCLA, USC and Colorado are just a few colleges showing interest in Umodu.
South Hills head coach Steve Bogan was very happy to shower praise on his talented defensive tackle prospect.
"Kebin is the younger, but bigger brother of UCLA linebacker Tobi Umodu," Bogan said. "He combines speed, explosion, size and talent.
"Kebin gets off the ball with as much speed and power as anyone on the west coast. I think Kebin is one of the best defensive linemen on the west coast."
Escarcega was also eager to talk about Umodu.
"Kebin's body is just beginning to develop," Escarcega said. "It's going to be scary once his body fully develops on the next level. He's going to be an impact player for whatever college he decides to attend."
Umodu earned first-team all-CIF and first-team all-league honors from his defensive tackle position as a junior after racking up 87 tackles, two sacks and one fumble recovery.
