Just got off the phone with Owamagbe Odighizuwa, and he sounds more torn than ever.
UCLA, Nebraska, Oregon and Oregon State remain his favorites and while he says he “feels good about UCLA; I feel like they have a good thing going for their program,” Owa was quick to say that other schools are still in the mix.
“At this point I’m looking for a reason not to want to go to a certain school,” Odighizuwa said. “Every school is kind of even at this point. I’m looking for a reason not to go.”
With his favorites in three different areas (Pacific Northwest, Midwest and Southern California), Odighizuwa said location isn’t a big selling point.
“At this point, it’s more the fit than everything,” Odighizuwa said. “Just the place I feel most comfortable at, the place my mom feels very comfortable with.”
Right now, playing time is not a major factor for Odighizuwa, but he certainly would love a chance to play if he’s ready.
“Playing time to me is this, if I’m ready to play and I’m going to play a significant amount, I wouldn’t mind that opportunity,” Odighizuwa said. “If I have to wait and I’m not ready yet, I’m going to work until I am ready.”
