Junior Update: Cyril Obiozor

DE <B>Cyril Obiozor</B>, 6-3.5, 233, is sporting one offer from a Big 12 school and one from a Pac-10 school. And the two 'ships the edge rusher from Pearland currently holds are from...

"Oklahoma State and UCLA," Obiozor said.

And those two schools stepping up big-time with offers means a lot to the pass-rushing specialist.

But before we go further, in case you missed the first Nike Camp report on the Pearland DE, allow me to give a very brief (four words) recap of his performance.

Kid blew it up.

And now the kid's gettin' paper.

Asked about his likes, dislikes and dialogue with the Cowboys, Obiozor said: "Oklahoma State's a great school. I'd love to go there. They said they enjoyed watching me practice and were offering a scholarship to me. Also said I had a chance to get some early playing time."


"Haven't spoke with them yet," said Obiozor, who clocked a blazing 4.21 shuttle at the Nike camp. "But think it's a nice place to go to school, like the weather and could see myself playing there."

As for how the kid is taking to the newfound attention, Obiozor said: "I like it, it's going pretty good. I realize the potential I have and want to strive to get better."

Qualifying status: Scored 1000 on SAT.

Camp Agenda: Texas, Texas A&M and possibly OU.

Commitment timeframe: Soaking all of it (the recruiting process) in right now.
