Bill and Jack Ikegwuonu's college decisions have become more complex in recent days.


The twins, standouts at Madison (Wis.) Memorial high school, had wanted to make their decisions earlier in the recruiting process, but now plan to take more official visits.


"We are probably going to wait a little bit longer," Bill Ikegwuonu said. "We have four more visits left so we want to use all of those."


Bill and Jack will make two official visits this weekend—first to Ball State Friday and Saturday (Jan. 23-24), then to Toledo Sunday and Monday (Jan. 25-26).


According to Bill, Toledo first contacted the brothers only a few days ago. They also received their first call from Cincinnati on Monday and the Bearcats said they were considering an offer. They are also still waiting to hear from Rutgers and Arizona, both of which recently requested tape.


The twins only official visit thus far has been a December trip to Western Michigan.


Ball State was the first Division I program to offer either Bill or Jack a scholarship, tendering an offer to each in early October. Oregon State was soon to follow, though the Pac-10 school has only offered Jack so far. The Beavers, however, recently requested additional tape on Bill and are considering an offer.


"We have to send Oregon State more film on me…they just don't know what position they want me to play," said Bill, who added that he sees himself as a safety in college.
