Chino Hills (Calif.) cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (5-11, 190), one of the top prospects at his position in the West, is sitting on double digit scholarship offers, but is anticipating that list will grow in the coming weeks.

"I've gotten offers from Washington, Duke, Arizona, Oregon, Arizona State, Stanford, Washington State, San Diego State, Idaho and Utah," said Ekpre-Olomu.

In addition, a host of West Coast schools are showing interest in him.

"I'm hearing the most from UCLA, USC, Fresno State, Boise State, and Oregon State," said Ekpre-Olomu. "Most said they're evaluating my tape and they'll go from there."

Ekpre-Olomu has been diligent in hitting camps this spring, getting as much exposure as he can.

"I went to UCLA and USC for their camps, and it went good at both of them," said Ekpre-Olomu. "There were a lot of good players there at the USC camp. The UCLA camp, I did good there I thought and learned a lot of new stuff."

Ekpre-Olomu is planning to return to both the Los Angeles schools in the next two weeks.

"I'll be at UCLA on Sunday and then at USC for the Rising Stars on June 23rd and 24th," said Ekpre-Olomu. "And yeah, hopefully I do well and get offers."

Ekpre-Olomu said he's wide open. "I don't have a top five at the moment, and I'm not sure I'm going to narrow things down anytime soon. I'm still looking at all the schools."

Ekpre-Olomu is hoping to see five other Pac-10 schools. "I'm hoping to get up to Cal and Stanford, and Arizona, Arizona State and Washington," said Ekpre-Olomu.

Ekpre-Olomu was invited to the Gridiron Kings in Orlando and plans to attend that as well.

Academically, he has a 3.0 GPA and scored a 980 on the two-part portion of the SAT.
