NY's Best Releases Top 10

After visiting local schools, hitting the combine trail and preparing to finish his junior year of high school, Ebenezer Ogundeko has narrowed his list to ten schools and committed to play in the Under Armour All-American game in Orlando, Florida. New York's top prospect filled Scout in with who's in the mix and more inside…

Schools have utilized the Spring evaluation period to the maximum when it comes to traveling to Brooklyn (NY) Thomas Jefferson High School in order to see the state's top prospect.

Versatile defender Ebenezer Ogundeko.

Over the last week, another pair of big-time programs stopped by to see the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder.

"The U (Miami) came by, Penn State came by and a bunch of other schools came by," said Ogundeko, who was once committed to Connecticut. "The U offered me and Penn State hasn't offered me yet – it's pretty interesting.

"I got a top 10 now."

"Notre Dame, Alabama, Miami, Florida, the ‘Cuse (Syracuse), UConn, Arizona State, West Virginia, Penn State, Boise State and that's it," he continued. "Those schools are standing out the most, those schools don't have any lee-way and it's all equal."

Ogundeko also let Scout know that the list will be narrowed down further at the end of July, perhaps after some visits.

"I haven't really thought about the visits yet but I'm thinking about visiting Notre Dame in the summer time," he admitted. "I'm done with all of the camps, though."

The top prospect in New York is still thinking about his good friend and classmate Augustus Edwards, the no. 2 prospect in the state. Last month, each admitted that they intend on playing at the same college.

"It's pretty good, me and him are going to talk and it's all going to go according to plan," Ogundeko maintained.

As if he wasn't busy enough, the potential outside linebacker or defensive end was given the chance to play in the Under Armour All-American game. He accepted.

Said Ogundeko, "They just called my coach and I let them know that they wanted me to play in it. I'm just excited to play in it because it's a great game. "

Ogundeko's recruitment is as hot as anybody's in America, so stay on FOX Sports Next and Scout.com for the latest on him and the rest of the Class of 2013.
