"I have decided on a top three," Opeseyitan said when asked the latest was in his recruitment. "It's Oklahoma State, Iowa State and Kansas State.
"With Oklahoma State, it's the coaches and the program and the atmosphere. It's just a place I think I should be," he continued. "With Kansas State, it is the coaches too. They are really nice and kind people. The coach (Tony Alford) at Iowa State and I have really hit it off. We talk every night before I go to bed about a lot of stuff, not even football, just regular stuff."
Opeseyitan is a standout among Texas running back prospects as the son of Nigerian parents rushed 145 times for 1,113 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He also had 163 yards and a touchdown catching the football. His parents are very important in his life and he says they will be a major part of the decision as he takes some trips to campuses this summer.
"I've been to Texas A&M and SMU, but I am going to travel to see all my schools (top three) this summer and my parents will be everywhere I go," explained Opeseyitan. "I am thinking that I will commit before or during my senior season and a lot of that depends on my parents and I making the right decision."
There is more new news regarding the 5-10, 205-pound running back. This weekend the Allen football squad tested physically for the start of their summer workouts and Opeseyitan really blazed his 40-yard sprint which was electronically timed. He stopped the lazer timer in 4.442 seconds.
"That's my best ever and it came with a lazer timer," said Opeseyitan proudly. "You know there is no offseason, summer is just an excuse for football players to train harder."
Opeseyitan did say that despite outstanding academics that he will wait until next summer to start training with his future college team. He and his parents decided that he would not graduate early and enroll at a school for the spring.
"I want to take my time and run track again and improve my speed," said the well spoken and friendly running back. "It's a fun time with your friends and I don't need to speed it up. College will get here soon enough."
