Ojemudia Picks Up Hawkeyes Offer

Farmington Hills (MI) S/OLB Michael Ojemudia officially visited Iowa this weekend and picked up a scholarship offer. He talked with HI about what it meant to his recruitment.

A lot of players would jump on their first Power-Five Conference offer when it arrives with less than two weeks until signing day. Michael Ojemudia is taking his time.

The safety/outside linebacker from Farmington Hills (MI) Harrison officially visited Iowa this weekend and picked up scholarship opportunity. It led him to de-commit from Eastern Michigan but not to him pledging to the Hawkeyes.

"Iowa is kind of far from home," the 6-foot-2, 190-pounder said. "I've got to make sure I make the right decision."

Ojemudia said that Hawkeye Head Coach Kirk Ferentz told him he would come to Michigan for an in-home visit this coming week.

"It will help me decide where I want to commit to," Ojemudia said.

Ojemudia, who Iowa is recruiting as a safety, still is considering an official visit to Indiana next weekend.

"I'll be figuring that out this week," he said.

Iowa impressed Ojemudia this weekend. He said he loved the campus, new facilities and the coaching staff. He also enjoyed being hosted by sophomore Desmond King.

"He's one of the best corners in the country," Ojemudia said. "It was great they paired me with another Michigan guy. He got me adjusted to the new atmosphere."

Ojemudia said he has not locked in a commitment date.

"It will depend on if I head out to Indiana," he said.
