Olaniyan Gets More Offers; Will Camp At Duke

The great thing about Aramide Olaniyan is that he is excited about every opportunity that comes to him in recruiting and has great respect for each school that is showing him interest. Then again, the tough thing about him is also that he is so excited about each school that is offering him. Finding out who he really likes in recruiting will be tough, but we all have a while to figure that out.

Wake Forest, Boston College, Stanford, Duke and Maryland have all sent written offers to Aramide Olaniyan, a 6-foot-1.5, 195-pound linebacker from Woodberry Forest School and more could be coming soon according to the Bowie, Md., native.

"I was really excited about the Maryland offer because I'm from Bowie and have always followed Maryland and been a huge fan of the program," Olaniyan said. "They are a great school and the coaches are all very cool, especially the defensive staff who I love."

"Wake Forest offered as well and I'll be there on February 8th for a visit," Olaniyan explained. "They have told me that I remind them a lot of Aaron Curry in terms of the size he came into Wake Forest at and that's a big compliment to be mentioned in the same sentence as a player of his caliber. They have an outstanding linebacker coach and I'm just excited to get there for junior day right now."

"Duke also offered and they're an amazing school that my parents also really love. I enjoy talking to the coaching staff a lot and am really looking forward to meeting Head Coach David Cutcliffe when I go to junior day on February 3rd. It's just very exciting to get an offer from such a prestigious school."

Olaniyan also feels that he could be picking up offers from North Carolina and Virginia in the upcoming weeks.
