What's the Status of Michael Okwo?

<b>Michael Okwo</b>, the linebacker prospect from Manhattan Beach, tells us exactly what the situation is between him and UCLA. Will he take an official visit this weekend?

Michael Okwo, 6-1, 200, Manhattan Beach (Calif.) Mira Costa, will not take an official visit to UCLA this weekend, and it looks like UCLA and Okwo have gone their separate ways.

"They haven't called me this week," Okwo said of UCLA. "I don't think they're interested."

Okwo said he had a plan to visit UCLA last weekend, but the plan fell through. He intended to then re-schedule the visit for this upcoming weekend and was waiting for UCLA to call him to make the arrangements.

"They haven't called me about taking a visit.  I haven't talked to them since last week. I haven't tried to get a hold of them either. I think it's pretty clear. And that's okay."


Okwo said that he sent in his application to Stanford last Saturday and expects to hear back from the Stanford coaches about being accepted soon. "I think a Stanford coach will be visiting either Thursday or Friday," he said. 


Okwo said that he'll commit to Stanford in the next couple of days. "That's how it is. And that's good. If I heard from UCLA at this point, I wouldn't consider them anymore."
