John Okwoli now is officially on the radar as one the more sought after wide receivers in Arizona.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Phoenix North Canyon senior-to-be received his latest offer from Colorado, giving him eight total and now two from the Pac-12.
His other Pac-12 offer is from Washington State.
Okowli also has football offers from Nevada, New Mexico State, Northern Arizona, UNLV, Utah State and Yale.
“Now I just got to take it all in, work even harder,” Okowli said. “I’ll go to some camps, and hopefully go on some visits.”
Last season, Okwoli stood out on an 0-11 team, catching 86 passes for 1,408 yards and 10 touchdowns. He had 1,934 all-purpose yards, including an interception he returned 61 yards for a score.
Playing in the secondary, Okowli had five tackles for losses, four pass breakups and two interceptions.
With his ability to return kicks, he is being recruited as an athlete, but Okwoli is as dynamic as any receiver in the state.
“It’s been a hectic but great recruiting process,” Okwoli said. “I’ve talked to so many college coaches, and I’m blessed that’s all finally happening, considering that I was under the radar for the past couple of years.”
