Aluko waiting for more college options

Alief Elsik OL/DL Emmanuel Aluko has been working hard this summer and hitting the camps to gain the attention of Division I coaches. Though he is still optimistic, Aluko stands with one offer to date. TPI had a talk with the Elsik athlete to catch the latest recruiting news.

At this point and time, Alief Elsik lineman Emmanuel Aluko stands at 6-3 and weighs about 290 pounds. After seeing time at guard in 2006 for the Rams, Aluko was hoping for more offers from Division I colleges. But, only one school has given him an official offer.

"I got an offer from North Texas this summer," Aluko said. 

Along with this offer, he is receiving interest from some Big 12 heavy weights including Texas, Texas A&M, and Oklahoma State. When asked if he had a favorite, "all equal" was his reply.

With a lone offer in hand, Aluko is looking to make the official visit to the land of the Mean Green. After attending their camp this summer, he made a few observations.

"What I really like about North Texas is their coaching staff," Aluko said. "The camp was very exciting. I will make an official visit there but I don't know when."

Last season Aluko recorded 47 pancake blocks from the guard position. This season he may split time on both sides of the ball.
