Boise State On Top For Texas WR

Big-bodied and possessing great hands, it's easy to see why Heritage High School (Frisco, Texas) receiver Bubba Ogbebor has been attracting college suitors left and right this summer. While Ogbebor named a Top-3 just a couple of months ago, the school currently residing at the top of his list has changed to a decidedly Bluer hue...

Interest in Bubba Ogbebor has grown steadily this summer. That interest is so great, in fact, that the three-star athlete doesn't want to commit until after his senior season in order to see what other schools come his way. That, however, hasn't stopped the 6-foot-1, 194-pound recruit from naming a top three of Boise State, Texas Tech and Kansas. And one of those colleges has risen to the top for Ogbebor.

"Those are my top three so far, but Tech is no longer my number one," he said. "Boise is."

The Broncos currently have verbal commitments from two receivers in the 2016 class, but Ogbebor says the numbers work out in his favor better at Boise State than with the Jayhawks or the Red Raiders.

"(Boise State doesn't) have that many wide receiver commits so I feel that I can make an immediate impact," he said. "And because I love their coaching staff, and they have very nice facilities and equipment."

Bronco coaches tell Ogbebor that they have one more receiver spot open for the 2016 recruiting cycle and that he is the type of player they want to bring into the fold.

"They've told me that I have a great all-around game and they seem to really enjoy me as a person," he said. "They like that I can stretch the field and that I can go up and get (the ball)."

Ogbebor is quick to point out that academics will play a big part in where he commits, but also emphasized him and his family must feel comfortable with the decision.

With additional offers from Minnesota, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, Georgia State and Central Arkansas, Ogbebor is open to additional offers and wants to take all five of his official visits before he commits. Ogbebor's linebacker brother, Osaze, was a member of the Jayhawks' 2015 recruiting class.

"I'm going to commit after the season, or (I will) possibly wait until signing day," he said.
