Cyril Obiozor Won't Be A Wildcat

A decision has been made, but the Texas native and defensive end won't announce until later this week. K-State is not in his final two.

Cyril Obiozor's decision is made up, but he's not announcing until later this week. And unfortunately, the 6-foot-3 233 pound and two-star defensive end won't be a Wildcat.

"It's between Oklahoma State and Texas A&M now," he said Tuesday night. "They offer a better opportunity to play sooner than I would at K-State. They have some pretty good ends there right now and I don't want to wait so long."

Playing time at K-State got a little thinner two weeks ago when McCollins Umeh committed. Umeh, from Texas, has already been told by the KSU coaching staff that he would be in the mix and play as a true freshman, so that odds of K-State not redshirting another DE would be unlikely because the Wildcats also return Scott Edmunds, Kevin Huntley, and Alax Carrier next season.

Obiozor, who said the Wildcats were in the running until three weeks ago before his visit to A&M, likes the Cowboys because it's a program on the rise and they have an immediate need for ends.

"I like what they're doing there," he said. "I know they have a real need for defensive linemen and they're starting to turn around the program and win big games."

The interest the Texas native has in the Aggies has a lot to with its closeness to home and the coaching staff there.

"They're going to be a lot better in the future I think," he said. "It's been tough there lately, but they have good tradition and a great coaching staff."
