Another big-time program may be in the mix, too, as the he is claiming a Penn State offer heading into the holidays.
"I talked to [Penn State tight ends coach John] Strollo, and he basically told me that they're offering me a full scholarship," Njoku said. "I thanked him and told him I'd definitely consider it.
"I visited Penn State a few times and it was very fun. It's a good college to go to, and I will be thinking about them during the [recruiting] process."
Njoku added he may visit University Park again — he visited to see Penn State down Michigan in October — but doesn't have a date set. The senior has already taken official visits to Temple, Alabama and Miami, and with a trip planned to Ohio State Jan. 14, his final official will likely go to either the Lions or Scarlet Knights.
Most programs are recruiting him as strictly a wide receiver, but both Ohio State and Penn State have focused on his ability as a flex tight end in their offensive attack.
"I think my speed would help me play that position," Njoku said. "I run a 4.47 [40-yard dash] so that's important, and not many tight ends are that quick.
"I believe I can get off the line a lot easier, especially now that I have more experience."
The senior does not have a date or timetable set for a decision, nor for when he will decide his final official visit destination. It's likely to come after the NCAA mandated dead period concludes Jan. 15.
