Big Ten School Soars to the Top for 2018 WR Samuel Oshodi

A school representing the Big Ten is sitting atop the list for Florida-based 2018 receiver, Samuel Oshodi.

Illinois served up an offer not even 24 hours ago, and now leads for up-and-coming receiver, Samuel Oshodi, who recently transferred into powerhouse Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas.

A prospect hailing out of the 2018 class, Oshodi is equipped with additional scholarship offers from OregonSouth Florida and UCF.

"Illinois (leads)," Oshodi said. "They have been showing the most interest. I've always liked the school in general for football and education, but the coaching staff is great and they treat me like family.

"I would fit into their offense well, and I'll also have a chance to prove myself as a freshman up there."

Oshodi, who is generating additional interest from Minnesota and Florida Atlantic, says his conversations with Love Smith's staff cover everything from his potential between the white lines to years following his playing days.

"I've been talking to running backs coach (Thad) Ward the most," Oshodi said. "He tells me it's not just about football up there, but also helping me grow as a man and that I would fit into their offense well."

Oregon is relentless when it comes to attacking the Sunshine State on the recruiting trail, with Oshodi being one of the latest prospects to surge up their receiver big board.

"Oregon is another school I really like," Oshodi said. "Their offense would fit me well, and they are a school I've always liked watching."

No dates are scheduled, but Oshodi plans to visit Illinois and South Florida over the summertime.
