Versatile junior Sam Ukwuachu (Pearland, Tex.) continues to see his stock rise after picking up his eighth offer on Wednesday. Boise State is the latest offer for the 6-foot-4, 202-pound defensive end. The Broncos join the likes of Northwestern, Baylor, Houston, Illinois, Louisville, Colorado and SMU in extending written offers.
“UK”, as he is known to his coaches and peers, played defensive end and some spot duty at receiver as a junior for the Oilers. He totaled 34 tackles, a pair of sacks and an interception along with 122 yards receiving and two touchdowns in 2009. He is receiving looks at defensive end, flex tight end and outside linebacker by college programs.
Texas A&M and Arkansas stand out among the many programs that are showing interest, but have yet to offer. He plans to camp at Texas A&M June 6. The Aggies are evaluating Ukwuachu as an outside linebacker in their 3-4 scheme.
He could end up on either side of the ball at the next level with defense being the most likely. His body, which features very long arms, is just beginning the process of filling out having gone from the low 190's to 202-pounds since the end of the season. His upper body development is ahead of the lower body.
Miami, Fla. -- With receivers seemingly getting bigger and stronger on a yearly basis, finding big time cornerbacks with size is high on the list for every college program. In the 2012 class, college coaches need only to make a short drive in the Miami area to see two of the best.
