Sanni Updates Offers & Favorites

Supo Sanni, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound, athlete, from Homewood-Flossmor high in Flossmor, Ill., is going to be a prospect that several college recruiters will keep a close eye on in 2007. Sanni is a terrific athlete that flashes on offense and on defense. We caught up with Sanni to talk about his early recruitment.

"I thought I had a good year last year," Supo Sanni said. "I mean, we played good teams all year. We played Bolingbrook and Dale Martin (Louisville) and I got a good lick on him. That gave me the confidence I needed to know I could play at the highest level."

Sanni is also a standout basketball player and we asked him which sport has his heart and if he wants to play both sports in college.

"Oh, it's football definitely," said Sanni. "I mean, I like basketball and all but I love football. Football is definitely the way to go for me."

Sanni played receiver and safety last year for the Vikings. We asked Supo where the college recruiters see him playing at the next level.

"I'm being recruited as both a safety and as a receiver." Sanni said. "Some schools have mentioned linebacker and it doesn't really matter to me where I play, I just want to be on the field."

Former Homewood-Flossmoor head coach Tom Bailey had this to add about Sanni's talents.

"Supo (Sanni) is a top five talent in the state of Illinois for football," Bailey said.

"Supo is also one of the best basketball players in the state. When Supo wants to turn it on, he looks like (Ted) Ginn Jr. from Ohio State. What Supo needs to work on is his consistency. You're talking about a young man with a tremendous upside."

We asked Sanni to talk about his scholarship offers and his current list of early favorites.

"Illinois, Michigan State and Toledo have all offered me a scholarship." Sanni said.

"My favorites are Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Purdue, Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan. I'm still wide open. Virginia is also a school I'm looking at. It's too early for me to name a leader.

"I'm going to be very busy this summer also. I have AAU Nationals coming up and I'll be going to a few football camps."

Sanni had 417 receiving yards in 2006. Defensively, Suppo racked up 52 solo tackles and 2 interceptions.
