Mbanasor Names Final Seven

Scout four-star cornerback P.J. Mbanasor has named his seven favorite programs as he tries to sort through the offers and make a final decision...

P.J. Mbanasor, a 6-foot-2, 182-pound cornerback from Pflugerville (Texas) Hendrickson named his top seven schools on Thursday.

In alphabetical order they were Florida, LSU, Michigan State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Oklahoma.

"Blessed to wake up and have another opportunity to play the sport I love with the people I love," Mbanasor said. "I wake up every morning taking nothing for granted, not everyone gets this opportunity."

"Thank you to anyone that supports me. Thank you to the schools and coaches that showed genuine interest and extended offers."

After originally making a decision to commit to TCU, Mbanasor opened things back up to look at other options.

Since that time he has become one of the most heavily recruited players in the country, racking up over 20 offers and earning and invite to participate in The Opening.

"It is exciting," Mbanasor said of the process. "It is a blessing being able to be in a position that not everyone else is in. Most people want to be successful or want to be the best, so me being given the opportunity to be that is a blessing."

Mbanasor says that he does not have a leader, but Oklahoma has been a school that has been a constant on his list.

At this time he is looking at all of the final schools equally.

"I wouldn't say a leader," Mbanasor explained. "I do not have a legitimate order or numerical order of who is in last or who is in first, but I am slowly working on narrowing things down."

"I am just taking it one day at a time. You know it is a long process and I just want to make sure that I have the best pick at the end of the day."

His commitment time-frame is to be determined, but like many TXHSFB talents he would not be opposed to making the call before his senior year kicks off, but if not, no worries.

"If I am fortunate enough to have my selection before my senior season then that would be good, but if it doesn't end up that way then I will have no problem with that," Mbanasor informed.

"I am willing to take as long as I need to to make sure that me, my parents, are comfortable with my decision."
