Pflugerville (TX) Hendrickson defensive end Victor Irokansi has seen his stock rise over the past several months. The 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive lineman has been having an impressive junior season and he is hearing from multiple big-time college programs.

Irokansi has been putting up impressive numbers so far this season. He has registered around 60 tackles and seven sacks through the regular season of his junior year. His large frame along with his dominant performance on the field has gotten the attention of several college coaches.

"Oklahoma State, Kansas State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma are recruiting me hard. I'm hearing from several other Big 12 and SEC schools but those are the ones that are talking to me the most," said Irokansi.

A few schools could be likely to extend scholarship offers in the near future.

"I think that Oklahoma State, Northwestern and Texas Tech are all close to offering. They said that they really want me to play for them."

As far as favorites, Irokansi insists that he doesn't plan to narrow things down until the offers start to roll in.

"I want to see what kind of offers I get first. I want to commit early, so I will narrow things down as soon as I get my offers. A lot of schools are recruiting me but you don't know who is actually serious until they offer you."

Irokansi is setting some lofts goals for himself in the playoffs to serve as motivation to play well.

"I always have goals going into a game. It serves as motivation to me to play well and help my team. I usually try to get around 10 tackles a game and I will be trying to get at least one sack a game too."

Hendrickson finished their season 5-5 and they will face West Mesquite in the first round of the playoffs next week.

Irokansi plans on traveling to College Station this weekend with his father and his teammates to watch the Aggies host the Oklahoma Sooners.

He reports that he currently has a 3.4 GPA and is on track to fully qualify.
