Recruiting: Oguntodu Deciding Between OSU, KU

Mesquite (Texas) Horn defensive back Olaitan Oguntodu has narrowed it down to Kansas and Oklahoma State. The 6-1, 200-pound safety prospect with 4.5 speed missed much of the season with a shoulder injury and that allowed him to take official visits to Boston College, Oklahoma State and Kansas. He thought he would make a decision after those visits, but now has inserted a new stage into it before he'll make his call.

"It's OSU or Kansas for me. OSU or Kansas," said Oguntodu. "Coach (Mike) Gundy and Coach (Todd) Bradford from OSU are coming in to visit me and my family on Nov. 30. Coach Doren from Kansas is coming in to visit next Sunday, Nov. 27, and then Coach Mangino (KU) and maybe Coach Bowen, my position coach, will come in on the 4th. I will make my decision after the home visits. This will allow for my parents to meet the coaches and become more involved in my decision. It will give me a better feel for where I will feel the most comfortable."

Oguntodu did not have his parents with him on his official visits. He did say that he had told a reporter several weeks ago if he had to make a decision immediately it would be Kansas, and he explained.

"I told him I was leaning to KU because they have a law school and that is very important to my future and wanting to be a sports agent," explained Oguntodu. "Other than that all else is equal when it comes to my undergraduate education and football. I like what both staffs are doing to take their football program to being winners, and I really feel comfortable with each program."

The home visits sound like they will be the tie-breaker with Oguntodu and his family.
