“It was great. Arkansas was a great place to be, great atmosphere and great team,” Omotosho said.
His first SEC offer was a bit of a shock.
“I actually wasn’t expecting it. I was hoping for it. It’s a great opportunity,” Omotosho said. “I was just as surprised as everyone else was.”
While the Razorbacks jumping in will certainly see them get consideration, Omotosho said the conference is big, but not a deciding factor.
“I’d say it plays a pretty big role, but it’s not something I’m going to be basing my decision off of solely,” the 6-3, 190-pound receiver said. “It plays a big role because you always want to set the standards pretty high for yourself.”
Scout’s No. 11 receiver in Texas said he’s just getting started building a relationship with the Arkansas staff, but likes what he’s seeing.
SMU receivers coach Justin Stepp stopped by Plano East last week to catch practice, but Omotosho couldn’t make it because he was at the area track meet. Omotosho said he’s kept building that relationship with Stepp though.
“I got to speak with him over the phone. I definitely like coach Stepp and honestly, the whole SMU staff a lot. They’re definitely one of my top schools I’m looking at,” Omotosho said.
Omotosho has talked here and there with SMU head coach Chad Morris, but he’s building a relationship with SMU’s new coach.
“Here and there, but it’s getting there. We’re building a relationship so that’s the same type of deal,” Omotosho said.
In terms of a decision, Omotosho is beginning to get ready for a busy summer of decision making, but admits there isn’t one school standing out. An Ohio State visit is in the works for Omotosho this summer.
“I wouldn’t say so. After the spring and over the summer, I’ll start making my decisions and pinpointing things here and there,” Omotosho said.
This spring, the talented receiver is looking to improve his entire game.
“My overall game because there’s nothing that I can’t improve on and there’s nothing that I’m perfect with. From ball skills to footwork, I’m trying to emphasis all my aspects and what I bring to the table and improve on it.”
