Recruiting: Ekom Udofia

Ekom Udofia (6-2, 290, 5.0) has two final visits scheduled, beginning with this weekend's trip to Oklahoma State, before he begins the process of making a decision on where he will play his college football.

Udofia, a defensive tackle from Scottsdale, Ariz., Chapparal High School, said he had a great visit to Miami last weekend and he will welcome the Miami coaches into his home to visit with his parents and himself tomorrow (Thurs.) night.

"My visit to Miami went well," said Udofia. "I really enjoyed hanging with the coaches and the players, and I'm looking forward to talking more with the coaches tomorrow night."

Udofia says distance is no problem for him, and that's a good thing because he has been to Stanford, USC, Miami and is now going to visit Oklahoma State this weekend and then finish with Oklahoma the next weekend.

"I'm anxious to finish up my visits," added Udofia, who said he's enjoying it, but ready to start the process of making a decision. "I probably won't make up my mind until sometime in January."

Part of the reason for that is he said he will wait and give Stanford (his brother plays there) a chance to get a new coach and get situated.

You might remember that Udofia missed the final weeks of the season with a broken leg.

"I'm able to do ankle movement now. It's not rehab, but I can take the boot off and move the ankle up and down. I'm still doing all the lifting that I can with the other leg and upper body. I'm also able to walk around on the boot."

Udofia said he will decide between the five schools that he has or will visit in the next two weeks. Again, expect the All-American to make that decision sometime in January.
