Ijeoma "EJ" Odigwe
It’s been too long since we’ve had any news on the class of 2015 recruiting front, but we got a bit today.
Rivals.com is reporting that Ijeoma Odigwe from Arizona’s Chandler High School has committed to Columbia.
I don’t see any Chandler alums on my LionFeeder list of schools, so this could be a groundbreaking deal for the Lions.
Chandler is a very strong football school to say the least.
Odigwe’s highlight reel is here.
So our list of reported incoming freshmen is now up to six:
1) Sean Coffinger LB 6-4 215 lbs. Desert Vista HS Phoenix, AZ
2) Ryan Flannery WR 6-3 185 lbs. North Attleborough HS North Attleborough, MA
3) Joe Kopp OL 6-4 260 lbs. Arundel HS Gambrills, MD
4) Hunter Little DL 6-4 225 lbs. The Webb School Knoxville, TN
5) Ijeoma Odigwe DL 6-2 220 lbs. Chandler HS Chandler, AZ
6) Kal Prince QB 6-4 198 lbs. Owenboro HS Owensboro, KY
-Desmond Conner, who writes the UConn football blog for the Hartford Courant, reports that Head Coach Norries Wilson interviewed for the vacant spot in Storrs eventually given to Paul Pasqualoni this week.
-Bloomberg is reporting that applications for Columbia's class of 2015 soared by 32% this past year. Suffice it to say that the boys who choose to play football for he Lions will join an EXTREMELY exclusive club any way you slice it.
