Pflugerville, Texas, power back Greg Nwoko has had an offer from New Mexico State for quite some time, but the 6-foot-2, 213-pounder has added another to his resume. And it looks like more could be on the horizon some time soon.
"UTEP has offered me now, and I guess Nebraska, they haven't sent an offer yet, but they're talking about it right now," he said. "Arkansas and Texas A&M are talking about it, too."
Nwoko said the new offer from UTEP was exciting for him. He is also still in touch with the coaches at New Mexico State.
"They just told me to go up to one of their camps and they just wanted to see how I would do over there," he said. "They wanted to see me running around and they liked it. It's a pretty nice school, and I like the coaches over there.
"I stay in contact with New Mexico State (since the offer). They've just been telling me to keep working hard, but that's all they've been saying. I haven't talked to them in a while."
UTEP and New Mexico State are two very good options, but Nwoko does admit he has other schools a little higher on his list.
"It's going to be between Arkansas, Nebraska, and Texas A&M for my favorite," he said.
"I might just wait and see which ones offer. I just like their systems they run and Nebraska, with the cold weather, they like to use big running backs. Arkansas and A&M, I like the way they run the ball and let the running backs do a lot of things."
Another wrinkle to Nwoko's recruitment is that some schools might be also looking at him to play linebacker.
"UTEP was saying linebacker, but also running back, though," he said. "I think so far, all the schools like me at running back. Some schools like Oklahoma State and Minnesota are looking at me at linebacker."
