The waiting game is now in effect.
Prime Prep linebacker Josh Ehambe will not be making any sudden moves when it comes to his recruitment.
The 2014 two-star prospect has made it clear that SMU and Louisiana Tech hold his preference at the moment, and he made his way to the Hilltop on Saturday to watch SMU live in action. But Ehambe wants to be sure that before he verbally commits, his high school coaches are behind him.
"I would like to commit pretty soon but I'm just waiting on my coach (Deion Sanders) to give me some information," Ehambe said. "I don't really want to bother him because I know he's busy because we're in season. So I'm just going to let them tell me when to commit."
Saturday's game at Ford Stadium was only the second collegiate football game Ehambe has witnessed in person, but he walked away impressed.
"I liked the atmosphere," Ehambe said. "The fans really got into the game so it was really nice out there."
Although Ehambe seems to be completely torn between the Mustangs and the Bulldogs, Ehambe has a multitude of reasons to stay in the city and play for his hometown squad.
One of the reasons he mentioned was the verbal commitment of his cousin – five-star point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.
"I'm happy with his decision," Ehambe said. "I feel like he made a great decision because he's like me. He doesn't feel like he has to go to Kentucky. He wants to be different and go to SMU and bring their program back up."
Ehambe has maintained a good relationship with both coaching staffs and briefly mentioned his solid relationship with SMU recruiter Jason Phillips.
Ehambe, who stands at 6-foot-3, 230-pounds and runs a 4.7 forty, believes he has the ability to fit right into both defensive schemes although SMU operates out of the 3-4 alignment and Louisiana Tech the 4-3.
"I feel I would fit into the SMU defense running the 3-4 and Louisiana Tech runs the same defense I run," Ehambe said. "I can play defensive end and also step back sometimes and play linebacker."
Ehambe, whose main goal is being a leader on his undefeated Prime Prep team, says he ‘definitely wants to commit before the end of the season.' His plan is to take an official visit to the Hilltop soon.
