During a contact period coaches can go to recruits' homes and visit with players. During this contact period Ebenezer Ogundeko has been very popular with some very prominent coaches. The outside linebacker from Brooklyn (N.Y.) Thomas Jefferson recently sat down with Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney.
"It was good, we just talked about regular stuff," said the 6-foot-3, 227-pound Ogundeko. "He was saying that I would be playing the jack linebacker position.
"My relationship with Coach Swinney is great," he said. "He's a great coach and I like him a lot. We don't talk about just football, we talk about other things going on in life. We talk about regular stuff."
Florida is the other team in Ogundeko's top two, so how do the two compare now?
"It's pretty even, I like both schools and I'm not sure which one I'm going to pick yet," he explained. "I have that same sort of relationship with the coaches at Florida. My relationship with them is pretty good also. So we'll see what happens."
Have any other coaches visited Ogundeko's house and made a push for him?
"Coach Hobby from Clemson and Coach Anselmo from Syracuse have come to my house also," said Ogundeko. "I'm visiting Syracuse this weekend. I really want to see what it's like up there and I really like the coaches also."
Ogundeko says a decision date could be nearing.
"I'm going decide which school I'm going to go to at the Under Armor game."
The four-star linebacker does not plan on visiting Clemson or Florida again before he makes his decision.
