Ohio State, Oklahoma Show New Interest in Scout 300 Receiver Erik Ezukanma

DALLAS -- Scout caught up with Erik Ezukanma at Sunday's True Buzz Group workout at Dallas Carter High School. The Scout 300 four-star receiver talked about Ohio State, Oklahoma, TCU, and Texas A&M.

Super-productive four-star receiver Erik Ezukanma owns more than a dozen FBS offers, including 10 from Power Five conference programs.

Two new powerhouse programs -- Ohio State and Oklahoma -- have increased interest in Ezukanma, he told Scout at Sunday's True Buzz Group workout at Carter High School in Dallas.

"I have interest in OU and Ohio State. They said they were gonna come watch me during spring ball," said Ezukanma, the No. 5 receiver in the Lone Star State. "Oklahoma, they're real diverse and they play some pro-style offense and get their receivers involved."

Ezukanma said assistant head coach Cale Gundy recruits him for the Sooners.

"They're telling me that they're very interested in me and they really want to get to know me before they offer," Ezukanma said. "They're coming down this spring so they can watch me practice.

"I don't know much about Ohio state, but I'm gonna try to learn about them and do my research. (Kevin Wilson) is telling me he wants to watch me practice and see how hard I go on every play."

TCU and Texas A&M are two schools that have already offered Ezukanma and seem to be in good standing with the 6-foot-2, 180-pound standout from Keller (Texas) Timber Creek.

Receivers coach Aaron Moorehead and defensive line coach Terry Price recruit Ezukanma for the Aggies.

"Just the relationship with the coaches I have," Ezukanma said of what stands out about Texas A&M, "and their football program as a whole."

Defensive line coach Dan Sharp recruits Ezukanma for the Horned Frogs, whose Amon G. Carter Stadium is 20.3 miles south of Timber Creek High School.

"Their coaching staff and their knowledge for the game," Ezukanma said of the Frogs' positive aspects, "and they get the receivers involved in the offense."

Ezukanma said he does not have any visits planned yet for the summer.

This past fall, Ezukanma assembled an enormous season statistically as he gained more than 1,800 yards from scrimmage and scored 24 total touchdowns. Ezukanma caught 88 passes for 1,447 yards and 20 TD's, while rushing for 383 yards and four scores on more than 13 yards per carry.
