2012 running back Kye Morgan has brought plenty of attention to Somerset, New Jersey, an early three-star prospect who already has a pair of offers to his name.
Thanks to Morgan, coaches have gotten a glimpse at Agudosi: a 6-foot-6, 195-pounder who is beginning to climb into the 2012 picture after a strong junior campaign. For the Somerset standout, a disappearing act in his sophomore season was washed away when he finished with over 800 yards and eight touchdowns.
“I started sending out highlight tape last month, and since then coaches have started calling the schools and the other coaches are now recruiting me a little harder,” he said. “Georgia, LSU, Notre Dame and Penn State have all been sending stuff and inviting me to come down. Rutgers and Virginia have both been by the school.”
The Tigers, who have their eye on a handful of prospects out of the Garden State, invited Agudosi to the school’s Junior Day earlier this month.
“I had by ticket bought and everything, then I found out that we were scheduled for a basketball game,” he said. “I was bummed out that I couldn’t go, but I am very interested. I have been invited back for camp, so I will get to see the school this summer. Hopefully I can work out for the coaches and get an offer.”
Half a world away, Agudosi hasn’t taken in a game in Death Valley or tasted Cajun cooking. No matter, he has his fingers on the pulse of the program.
“I see it all on television,” he said. “The atmosphere seems unbelievable. I really like coach (Les) Miles, too. The media jabs on him, but I read where his players love to play for him and would do anything for him.
“He puts them in situations where they get to play football. If it’s 4th and 3, he’s going for it. He wants to win, but you can tell LSU still makes it fun.”
Agudosi is now set to begin track season, and he expects a number of college coaches to visit the campus this spring. By summer, he will begin his travels.
“I’m excited to get out and see these schools that are recruiting me,” he said. “I am hearing from people all over the place, so distance won’t be a problem. I will go wherever the best fit is.”
