It's down to two for Frisco (Texas) receiver Bubba Ogbebor, Boise State and Oklahoma

It's down to two for Frisco (Texas) receiver Bubba Ogbebor. Two schools that have a bit of a history..

The 3-star athlete will visit long-time favorite Boise State this weekend (Jan. 15-17) before heading to Norman, Okla., to check out what the Sooners have for him.

Ogbebor hasn't been offered by Oklahoma yet, but he knows that can change quickly.

"They're waiting to see how things go and they might offer," said Ogbebor, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound recruit from Heritage High School.

The Broncos currently have Ogbebor as the No. 1 receiver on their board. At one point there was a concern about his eligibility in regards to an ACT score, but Ogbebor reports that he scored a 20. That, he said, is enough to make him a full-academic qualifier.

With all boxes checked, Boise State is hoping to real in a commitment from the explosive Texas athlete.

"They like me because of the skill set I bring and my character," he said.

And Ogbebor likes what he's heard from the BSU coaching staff, leaving him excited about his first visit to the Gem State.

"I like how everything kind of feels like a family," he said. "I feel like they have my best interest at heart.

"I'm looking forward to seeing how the school looks and how the players operate and go about college life."

Ogbebor says the departure of Boise State offensive coordinator Eliah Drinkwitz does not change his feelings about the Broncos.

"Not at all," he said.

After his visits to Boise and Norman, Ogbebor will take his time before making a decision. He plans to announce on signing day, Feb. 3.
