Everything Checks Out for Ndulue

Chuka Ndulue was one of the highly touted oficial visitors in Norman this weekend and he left the campus feeling even better about his future in the crimson and cream.

It was late May when Dallas Jesuit defensive end Chuka Ndulue made the call that Oklahoma was the place for him to attend college. So after an official visit, which included the Bedlam match and 14 other recruits in town, has anything changed for North Texas defender.

"Oh no, Oklahoma is the school for me. I had a great experience and loved everything about it," Ndulue said about the trip to Norman for his official visit. "I came in Friday and had a great time the entire time I was there."

For Ndulue, the highlight of the weekend was simply the people of Norman: the coaches, players and fans and community.

"I love that all of the people there are so down to earth," Ndulue said. "Everything felt so comfortable and I really feel like I will fit in."

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound Ndulue is being brought in as a pass-rushing defensive end. In his final season at Jesuit, he had 60 tackles and eight sacks.

On the host duties for Ndulue during his visit was redshirt freshman and former Arlington Bowie defensive end Jarrett Brown. And while Brown was playing host, his position coach was showing him around a lot as well.

"Coach (Chris) Wilson showed me a lot of things this weekend," Ndulue said. "He's a great coach who I feel like I can play for. You know that he cares about you as a person just as much as a player. That's a good feeling for me."

Of course the annual game, referred to as the Bedlam game against Oklahoma State, was a big deal for Ndulue as well. Along with that, there are a few schemes defensively that caught his attention as well.

"It was crazy. The game was exciting and it was so loud out there," Ndulue said. "I like the ways the coaches move the defensive ends around a lot. That keeps the offense guessing. I think I would do well in a defense like that."

Ndulue affirmed that his commitment is a solid one. Once on campus, he looks to major ion computer engineering or psychology.
