2018 WR Erik Ezukanma Talks about Football and More

One of the most talked about recruits in recent weeks has been wide receiver Erik Ezukanma. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound playmaker checks in from Fort Worth (Texas) Timber Creek High School.

“The recruiting process has been alright,” Erik Ezukanma said.  “I’ve got a lot of attention this year, and hopefully all of this will get me to the next level.”


Kansas extended a verbal offer, but Houston Cougars is showing the most interest in the 2018 standout receiver.


“Houston most definitely,” Ezukanma said.  “They've given me a game invite a couple of weeks back, and they treated me like family. I liked it there.”


Timber Creek is off to a 3-2 start on the season.


“Well the Timber Creek High School started the season great at 3-0, but we hit a bump in the road against Denton and Fossil so as of now we're 3-2,” Ezukanma said. “This bye will help us tremendously, and we'll bounce back. But on the other hand my season so far has been great I've broken school records. Average 3 Touchdowns a game and I'm going to try to do what I can to win.”


Ezukanma is not sure which team he will visit next, but he is hoping to receive interest from the Oregon Ducks.

Ezukanma possesses a great frame to become a big outside receiver, though his agility and penchant for making defenders miss in close quarters are reminiscent of a significantly smaller slot receiver. He's a smooth, gliding receiver who can hurt a defense vertically and in the screen game, while also preventing a serious threat in jet/fly situations. -- Gabe Brooks.
