What offense does Edoga prefer?

Chuma Edoga has scholarship offers from schools nationwide and he did have a top five. That top group changed this week and you can get details about that and what will effect his decision...

Entering this week, Chuma Edoga had a top five of Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, and Oregon.

That changed earlier this week when Alabama offered the four-star offensive tackle.

"I never imagined I would get an offer like this (Alabama)," said Edoga. "I think Alabama is the best college football school in the country.

"I have to put them in my top group. You cannot ignore an offer from the school with the best coach in America, Nick Saban."

So Edoga's top five five has expanded to a top six right now.

Alabama is known for its physical play up front and their pro-style offense that is built around a powerful running game.

Does the Tide offense fit what the 6-foot-4, 275 pound junior offensive tackle is looking for?

"I really like the spread offenses more and that is what I prefer to play in when I go to college. I am able to use my athleticism more in that offense, I can block more out in space, and I think that offense fits me best.

"That is something I am looking at right now. I like the offenses that Oregon, Auburn, and some others run. Those are good fits for me."

Coach staffs are important too.

The Scout 100 prospect out of Powder Springs (Ga.) McEachern wants to play for someone he feels comfortable with.

"I want to be comfortable where I play and the coaches play a big part in that," said Edoga. "I want to be treated well, I want to get along with my position coach, the environment the coaches create, and things like that."

Edoga has good feet and long arms.
A school not too far from home on Edoga's list has had him on their campus numerous times and when talking comfort level and relationships, both are strong points here.

"Coach [Will] Friend at Georgia is a coach I have a strong relationship with. He is one of my favorite coaches and that is why Georgia is high on my list. I also feel good at Georgia when I am there and I like it because it is an in-state school."

Could playing with teammate Taj Griffin trump offensive style or personal relationships when all is said and done?

The two national recruits are teammates and close friends, and they want to play together on the next level.

"We have been talking about staying together for a long time now. We go on visits together, we talk a lot about different schools, and we have the same schools high on our list.

"I do not know the percentage, but I think there is a strong chance we go to the same college."

A decision will not come any time soon and many schools are showing the pair a lot of love on the recruiting school, but one school may be showing more than the rest right now.

"Oregon is really recruiting us a lot early," said Edoga. "The coaches talk to me and Taj a lot and we both like the offense at Oregon and how they play. Location could play into our decision, but I know we would both go to Oregon."
