Evaluation Notes: 

Ezukanma possesses a great frame to become a big outside receiver, though his agility and penchant for making defenders miss in close quarters is reminiscent of a significantly smaller slot receiver. He's a smooth, gliding receiver who can hurt a defense vertically and in the screen game, while also preventing a serious threat in jet/fly situations. He has impressive balance and that allows him to stay low and make cuts quickly, while his size and strength allows him to run through arm tackles. He has a very high upside, will need to continue on evolving into a more complete receiver as a blocker and selling plays when he is not getting the ball. - Greg Powers and Gabe Brooks

Ezukanma had one of the best seasons in Texas for a receiver as he gained 1,830 yards from scrimmage and scored 24 offensive touchdowns. Ezukanma caught 88 passes for 1,447 yards and 20 touchdowns on more than 16 yards per reception, while rushing for 383 yards and four TD's on 13-plus yards per carry.

Recruiting Notes:

Considering offers from programs such as Arkansas, Mississippi, Missouri, SMU, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Utah.
