As a result, Ezeike has seen his recruitment soar, with 14 offers to his name.

Ezeike is planning to head up to UCLA this weekend for the Bruins' spring game.

"Coach Demetrice Martin is recruiting me at UCLA and I'll be up there on Saturday," said Ezeike.

When Ezeike was offered by the Bruins last month, he called it a childhood dream offer and he's planning to get back to Westwood for an unofficial visit later this spring. 

"I haven't been able to get up there this spring yet for an unofficial, but am planning to visit soon," said Ezeike.

Earlier this month, Ezeike took an unofficial visit to Oregon and raved about the trip.

"Oregon was great," said Ezeike.  "It was a really good experience for me.  What stood out the most was the intensity of practice and the hype."

Ezeike got a chance to meet with the Duck coaches on the trip.

"I talked to every coach but spent time with Coach (Willie) Taggart, Coach (Marcus) Arroyo and Coach (Mike) Johnson," said Ezeike.

Ezeike plans a number of visits.

"I am taking a lot of trips this summer," said Ezeike.  "To UtahTexas A&MVanderbilt and California."

While Ezeike doesn't have a short list or a top five, a few schools are standing out.

"Right now, I'd say Oregon, UCLA, Utah and Cal," said Ezeike.

A few more could be close and others are showing more interest.

"Nebraska and Texas A&M are showing a lot of interest and I'm hearing from TennesseeMiamiArizona and Arizona State," said Ezeike.

Ezeike has a timeframe in mind for a decision.

"I will drop a top five or seven in September on the 17th, on my birthday, and then I will be committing after the season." said Ezeike.
