Denton (Texas) Ryan safety Ishie Oduegwu took in his first football camp of the summer this week and has come away with a list of this top five schools.
“Wednesday was the last day of the K-State camp,” the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Oduegwu said. “I think they were really impressed with me. I felt like I played really well and did the things they had us doing as good as anyone there.
“Coach (Bob) Elliott really liked me and said he really wanted me. He is their defensive coordinator and the defensive backs coach. I think they are going to offer me. I’m still in Manhattan. I haven’t even left yet, but will be soon. I also have the Texas camp June 13 that I will be going to.”
