Profile - Stephen Omorogbe
River Ridge (Woodstock, GA) athlete Stephen Omorogbe is being recruited as both a tight end and a defensive end. Saturday Omorogbe visited one of the schools that likes him on the defensive side of the ball.
Stephen made the short drive down I-75 to visit Georgia Tech. Omorogbe described the visit as a great experience. Stephen talked with Coach Mike Sewak and Coach Brad Waggoner on his visit. “They really made me feel welcome at Georgia Tech.”
The coaches have looked at Stephen’s film and have invited him back for another visit this spring. Omorogbe plans to make that return visit. “They said they would be coming to my school to watch me practice. I'm looking forward to that.”
Tech is looking at Stephen as defensive end or possibly as an outside linebacker. Omorogbe is currently 6’4”-240. Just as many schools are looking at Stephen as a tight end as they are at defensive end. "The team I pick for college will dictate where I play on the field as I want to help my team more than saying I want to play a particular position."
Omorogbe is hoping to get an offer from Tech. “I hope that when they see me practice that they will offer.” Getting an offer from Tech would be awesome according to Stephen.
In addition to returning to watch Tech practice this spring, he also plans to return for the spring game in April. "The coaches want me to come and I'd like to be there to see the team in a game type situation."
Cornell, Georgia State, Mercer,Yale, and Harvard are the schools that have offered Stephen thus far. Stephen will be visiting Auburn, Florida, Tennessee, and Wake Forest this spring. “I've already visited Auburn and Tennessee. Those were good visits."
There are several other teams showing a lot of interest in Stephen. UCLA, Arizona State, Kansas State, and Pittsburgh have sent him recruiting material. ""I like the fact that my recruitment is picking up. I may also visit Kansas State too."
Stephen is not ready to name any leaders. “I’m wide open to any school right now.” Omorogbe is young for his class and he wants to make sure he makes the right decision the first time around. Stephen won’t be turning 18 until he is in college.
