VIDEO: Top RB Soso Jamabo narrows field to ... University of Phoenix and ITT Tech

By

Leave it to Soso Jamabo. The Dallas-area superstar who attends Plano West knows that he’s in the spotlight, and he’s handling that attention with a heavy dose of humor.

Making a brief television appearance on Sunday night, Jamabo was asked about his recruitment. On the heels of an unofficial visit to the Charlie Strong’s Texas program in Austin, Jamabo said he was ready to narrow his school choice to two: the University of Phoenix and ITT Tech.

Here’s more precisely how Jamabo set out the decision:

“On signing day I’ll be committing between two schools: the University of Phoenix as well as ITT Tech.”

Obviously, Jamabo isn’t going to be taking classes from the University of Phoenix or ITT Tech. He’s certainly not playing football for either of the non-geographically based schools, either. However, the running back’s collegiate choice may very well be a bit more narrow now than it was before. UCLA has always been considered a major player for his signature, and Texas is considered a firm contender as well following his visit to Austin.

Where will Jamabo go? That’s anyone’s guess. If it wasn’t clear beforehand, his impromptu media moment seems to indicate there’s no chance we’ll find out before National Signing Day, either.
