Chinedum Ndukwe, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound, wide receiver from Dublin (Ohio) Coffman is the #1 wide receiver prospect in the Midwest. "Nedu" is the best Midwest wide receiver that I've seen on film this year, with Indiana's Jeff Samardzija coming a close second.
Nedu has several scholarship offers and he says that he's not in a hurry to make a decision. "I'm still going to take my time with my decision." Ndukwe said. "Notre Dame, Stanford, Penn State, Purdue and Maryland are my favorites.
"Notre Dame and Stanford are my leaders. Notre Dame has offered but I'll have to get accepted at Stanford before they can offer a scholarship.
"The Notre Dame camp went very well. I ran a 4.5 in the 40 and I did well in all the drills. I met a lot of the top wide receiver prospects at camp. (Indiana's) Jeff Samardzija and (Wisconsin's) Greg Bracey were both there.
"The Notre Dame coaches said they couldn't offer me a scholarship on campus but I had the feeling that I was going to be offered. When I got home from camp, a Fed-Ex truck pulled up to the house and it was my offer from Notre Dame."
The Fighting Irish also offered top receiver prospect Jeff Samardzija. If Tyrone Willingham can land both Ndukwe and Samardzija, that would be a major recruiting coup for the Irish.
Ndukwe is a strong, physical wide receiver that's very athletic. Look for a big senior season from Nedu as he will be on the receiving end of passes from blue-chip quarterback recruit Brady Quinn.
Will Ndukwe be Irish?
