Okafor's Decision Coming Soon

TigerRag.com caught up with Pflugerville High School product Alex Okafor (6'5, 230, 4.6) to discuss his recent visit to Death Valley for Junior Day.

"The visit went well," Okafor stated. "There were a lot kids there, but the coaches kind of pulled me off to the side to talk about things. They said they were really interested in me and they wanted me to be a part of their team.

"I enjoyed the talks," Okafor added. "Each coach had his own personality. It's a pretty diverse coaching staff."

The defensive standout ended his tour of the LSU campus impressed, but he was not the only one.

"I liked LSU's academic center," Okafor said. "I think it was the one Shaq donated or something, but my mom was most impressed. She liked how they provide a tutor for every class. It seems like it would be hard not to succeed at LSU."

The last time TigerRag.com spoke with Okafor, he possessed only three offers. Now, the talented student-athlete has eight.

"I have offers from nine teams now (LSU, Texas, Stanford, Auburn, Oklahoma, Boston College, Baylor, Texas Tech, and Nebraska)," Okafor informed. "LSU, Texas and Stanford are still my top three though."

The 4-star defensive end has taken trips to Texas and LSU thus far and is scheduled for another visit to the west coast this weekend.

"I am visiting Stanford this weekend," Okafor stated. "I want to make my decision within a month or so. I'd like to get it out of the way by spring time so I can focus on my school work and my team.

"I think those three visits will be my only three before my decision," Okafor continued. "A few other schools are appealing to me, but right now I think LSU, Texas and Stanford will be my only visits. My decision will probably come between mid-March to early April."
