Kempner DB has favorite in the WAC

Kempner defensive back Chris Banjo hold two offers, but is waiting for one in particular. Though his current offers are still a consideration, his ideal school is at the top of his list of favorites. TPI caught up with Banjo to get the latest news in recruiting.

The 5-11, 190-pound Kempner defensive back Chris Banjo is not worried about making an early commitment. With two offers in hand, he patiently waits on an offer from a school that made quite a name for itself last season.

"Me and my parents are really interested in Boise State," Banjo said. "I am thinking about going up there when we have our bye week. Boise (State) is my favorite, the Cinderella team."

And with that being said, Banjo has done his research. He said he read a statistic somewhere that stated Boise State has the highest winning percentage in the country. 

Banjo finished last season with 87 tackles, and interception, and four fumble recoveries. That level of play earned him scholarship offers from UTEP and Navy

Of the two, it appears UTEP would have the upper hand. He had the opportunity to meet the Miner coaching staff and explained how that experience was.

"I went to their (UTEP) camp in West Houston over the summer," Banjo said. "They called the next day and offered me. I really like coach (Mike) Price and the coaching staff."

Aside from the offers, Banjo has interest from Northwestern, New Mexico, Louisiana Tech, Boise State, and North Texas. He said his plan is to make a decision after he finishes his senior football season. By then he will have taken all of his visits and he said he will take the time to evaluate each school.

"I'm already going to Navy and I'm also trying to go to New Mexico," Banjo said. "I am really focused for my senior season. I hope everything falls into place."
