Klein (Texas) Forest defensive end McCollins Umeh continues to keep the recruiting trail open.
“I’m not limiting anyone yet,” the 6-foot-3, 240-pound Umeh said. “I want to hear what all the schools have to tell me before I really trim the list down. I’m not in any real hurry.”
The schools recruiting Rivals.com’s No. 7 rated defensive end nationally include Texas, Colorado, Iowa State, Michigan State, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
“Things are going good,” he said. “I’m trying to learn as much about the schools as I can. I haven’t been to any schools this summer. I didn’t get to any camps this year. I just stayed around here and took it pretty easy while I was working out.”
The four-star rated defensive end has scholarship offers from several schools, but not the school at the top of his list.
“Texas is at the top of my list right now,” he said. “But, they haven’t offered me a scholarship. There are several schools I like, but Texas is my favorite right now.”
Umeh, like most recruits, is looking for a school that offers him a chance to get a good education in addition to the football he could play.
“That is the top thing I’m looking at,” Umeh said of educations the school could provide. “A lot of schools are good, but I want to find the best one for me.”
While Umeh is being recruited hard by many schools, he knows his football season is rapidly approaching.
“I want to win it all this year,” he said. “This is my last year of high school, and I want to win the state title. That is our goal this year."
