"It said," Oghobaase continued, "something like: 'I wanted to send you a note telling you how much I enjoyed visiting with you today and wanted to reinforce my scholarship offer to you... We're very proud of our football program and Coach Dooley and myself hope you will join us. Sincerely, Nick Saban.'"
Needless to say, collecting an offer from the most recent national champion meant quite a bit to the stud defender from Alief Hastings.
"It was awesome," he said. "They must really, really like me as a player and as a student athlete. I have no words for it. They just won a national championship and they're coming after me as a junior."
Meanwhile, Texas A&M failed to follow up on their promise of tendering the kid an offer, something Oghobaase mentioned. The 6-5.5, 300-pounder is already learning the difference between a verbal and an in-hand offer...
Top teams he's now looking at?
In alphabetical order: Houston, Iowa, LSU, Miami, Michigan, OU, Texas, Texas A&M.
Oghobaase said he has yet to hear from Michigan, OU and Texas, while Iowa continues its courtship via mail...
Both Miami and LSU have invited him to their junior days, but with them scheduled only a day apart (Miami, Feb. 28; LSU Feb. 29), he may only make it to one of the two.
