Okoronwo Says He's Solid To Oklahoma State

Alief Taylor High School is 1-2 thus far this season, but there are promising days ahead for the Lions as they have been playing really good defense paced by Oklahoma State commitment Ogbonnia Okoronwo and USC pledge Terrodney Prevot.

"We're 1-2 but I feel great because we are playing really good defense," said Okoronkwo. "I'm happy about the defense, and as a team we've struggled but we're getting it together and we will get better in practice this week."

Okoronwo said he has improved his game and has worked hard to become a more well rounded defense end. He is 6-3, 220 pounds and moves really well.

"I've always been a pass rusher that got a lot of sacks, but I've really focused on becoming a better run stopper," explained Okoronwo. "I am now stopping the run pretty good. I get there behind the line of scrimmage and have improved that part of my game a lot."

Okoronwo, who committed to Oklahoma State this summer, has obviously been playing well. He told us that starting on Monday he will also be doing some duty on offense at tight end. He is looking forward to that, and perhaps the chacne to catch some passes.

He has also been catching some attention from other schools.

"Yes, West Virginia and Oklahoma have offered me scholarships now," answered Okoronwo when asked about the attention. "It has not changed anything. I am still committed to Oklahoma State."

In the meantime he is committed to helping Taylor as they finish non-district play this week with Angleton, and then open district play the next week with rival Alief Elsik.
