Iowa Visits Okorafor

Iowa continued its push to flip Western Michigan commitment Chukwuma Okorafor. The offensive lineman played host to two Hawkeye assistants at his home Thursday night and gives us the latest.

Iowa continues to work on flipping 2014 Michigan offensive tackle Chukmuwa Okorafor from his Western Michigan verbal commitment.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Okorafor played host to Hawkeye assistants Brian Ferentz and Phil Parker Thursday night, he confirmed in a text message.

"They want me to go visit," Okorafor wrote in a text.

Okorafor committed to Western Michigan in April. Since then, the Southfield High product has picked up scholarship offers from Iowa, Arkansas, Florida, Nebraska, NC State, Oklahoma and Virginia, among others.

Western Michigan played host to Okorafor on his official visit there last weekend. This week, he said he was firmly committed the Broncos and finished with the recruiting process.

While Okorafor was willing to hear out Parker and Ferentz, he told them that he was still solidly pledged to Western Michigan and had no plans to take more visits.

Like a lot of situations in recruiting, this one is fluid. Athletes can sign binding letters of intent with schools beginning on Feb. 5.
