League City (Texas) Clear Creek three-star running back Kaliq Kokuma recently added an offer from Texas State to a list that also includes Arkansas State, Houston, Illinois, New Mexico State, and Wake Forest, and has a few trips coming up in the very near future.
"I'm making a trip up to Chicago to visit Illinois in Champaign in July, and then I'm going to take a visit to San Marcos to go see Texas State later on in the summer as well," Kokuma said.
He has not attended any camps to this point in the summer, and at last report had a top two of Houston and Wake Forest. Now that list of two has expanded to three.
"I have my top three right now - Wake Forest, Illinois, and UofH," Kokuma said.
"I really like UofH because at the junior day I sat down and talked to coach Levine after the meeting. I told him everything and he told me what he sees me doing at UofH so I really liked that and he made me feel real comfortable at UofH.
"Illinois, I like the offense. The run the ball a lot and I like getting the ball. I want to go up there and see.
"Wake Forest, they're in my three right now but they're kind of far. I like them though. I really want to go out there. I like them on paper though. I just have to see it."
He does not have a summer visit scheduled to Wake Forest, but says he will probably take his first official visit to check out the Demon Deacons program. However, he admits he may make a college decision before he has a chance to take official visits.
"Hopefully when I get back from visiting Texas State and Illinois I'll have a better idea of where I want to go and I'll probably commit sometime before the season," Kokuma said.
Even if he does make a decision, a future official visit may not be out of the questions. However, he also likes that a summer decision would calm the waters as he enters the 2013 season.
"I don't want all of this hanging over my head during the season," Kokuma said. "I really want to focus on my team. This is my last year of high school football and we're trying to go win district and state."
