“I talked to Coach (Chris) Singletary and he let me know I earned a scholarship offer to the University of Michigan,” Okudah said.
The scholarship from the Wolverines is extra special for the 6-foot-1.5, 200-pound prospect.
“I was in awe cause it meant a lot to me that Coach (Jim) Harbaugh looked at me and evaluated me and thought I was deserving,” Okudah said.
“It means a lot because I know he was successful at Stanford and with the 49ers and I’m excited to see what he can do at Michigan.”
Despite being just a sophomore in high school Okudah actually does have a great understanding of what Michigan’s program used to be.
“I know they used to be a powerhouse and had Charles Woodson and Desmond Howard,” Okudah said. “They have a great rivalry with Ohio State and they take football very seriously up there.”
“I’m talking to my family about it and see how far we can get out,” he said. “I’m going to go from there.”
Okudah is fresh off a strong second season of high school ball, actually playing on both sides for Grand Prairie.
“I excelled at being versatile as far as going on offense and defense and making plays on special teams,” he said.
