Coach Larry Johnson from Penn State was down to visit today, as well, Okoli said. He talked to me a little bit about how much they wanted me and we talked about my upcoming visit. I am looking forward to visiting Penn State this weekend. I am expecting a real good visit and that is what they promised me.
Okoli has four finalists — the aforementioned schools which have all offered — but says two programs are ahead of the pack.
My top two are Penn State and Virginia Tech, Okoli said.
Penn State received a verbal commitment this week from Delaware defensive end Devon Still. Will that have a bearing on Okoli's decision?
His commitment will have no impact, Okoli said. I still like Penn State a lot. They send a lot of defensive linemen to the NFL, and they want me as a defensive end so I am going to take a look at them this weekend.
Okoli burst onto the recruiting scene after a huge senior season in which he recorded 72 tackles, 15 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, 3 fumble recoveries and one fumble returned for a touchdown.
Stay tuned for more this weekend as Okoli visits Penn State and begins winding down his recruiting process.
