Scottsdale, Ariz. defensive tackle Ekom Udofia.

Ekom Udofia, DT, 6-1, 290, 5.1, SCOTSDALE (CHAPARRAL HS), ARIZONA:

JH: How is your summer going?

EU: "It went very fast. It was good, but it wasn't a summer where I went out and had a bunch of fun. I trained twice a day for football and then spent the rest of the time resting for the next workout. We had two-a-days last week and school started for us this week, so my summer is pretty much gone. We also went to full pads yesterday, so we are already into some serious football. Our first scrimmage is next week."

JH: Did you visit any schools this summer?

EU: "I didn't go on any unofficial visits and the only camp I went to was the NIKE camp at Stanford. I have been setting up my official visits, and so far I have five official visits that I am going to take and two unofficial visits."

JH: Who are you going to visit?

EU: "I am going to visit Miami, USC, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and LSU officially. Unofficially, I am going to visit Stanford and Arizona."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

EU: "Oklahoma is just a great school overall both athletically and academically. Coach (Jackie) Shipp has been sending me a bunch of information on how good Oklahoma is academically and they are at the top of the Big 12 Conference. Then he has been telling me how good Oklahoma is as a football program. Oklahoma is a great school and I need to go and check them out."

JH: Do you have a leader at this point?

EU: "No, I haven't really sat down to consider a leader. I am still trying to sort through some things and I am still trying to figure out what I can do."
