At 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, Nwankwo got very excited about one of those offers in particular -- one that came in yesterday.
"I was ecstatic because I never thought that Georgia was even looking at me in that way to give me an offer," he said. "They were on my radar since I went to NMB and since Max Jean Gilles attended there and now he's going to the NFL. They have moved up my list to maybe now even being tied for first on my top five."
The other co-favorite remains the University of Miami, who is the only school in his top five that hasn't offered yet. Florida, Auburn, and Virginia round out his list of early favorites.
Nwankwo and several of his teammates plan to attend the Scout.com All-American Combine on May 13 in Boca Raton.
