Oku postpones decision

David Oku was slated to announce his college decision. But the five-star running from Oklahoma City (OK) Carl Albert has decided to put his decision on hold and won't make any announcement this week.

Oku, who wanted to announce his decision before his father, Bo, was deployed to Iraq, recently learned that his father's stint abroad would be shorter than expected. Bo Oku is scheduled to return from Iraq next month.

"I thought I was ready," Oku told NewsOK.com. "But when he said he was coming back, I started thinking about it a little more and figured I'd wait until he got back."

Louisville, along with Nebraska, Tennessee and Michigan are the finalists for Oku. Oku made an official visit to Louisville earlier this month and has trips planned to his other finalists.
