Northwestern offered Ugo Amadi Wednesday night when head coach Pat Fitzgerald spoke with the talented junior over the phone.
That offer came as no surprise to Amadi.
"Northwestern had been showing a lot of interest in me before offering me a full scholarship," said Amadi. "They are off to a great start this season and they provide a great education. It doesn't get any better than that."
Duke, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Tulsa, and Western Kentucky have also offered the 5-foot-11, 180 pound cornerback out of Nashville (Tenn.) Overton.
He recently visited UK for the Wildcats game against Alabama. "It was a tough game for Kentucky because Alabama is so good, but it is a nice place. I really watched their defensive backs and they need some help at that position. I think I would have the opportunity to play as a freshman there."
The only other school the three-star corner has visited this fall is Tennessee. He saw the Vols battle Georgia into overtime.
"It was really a great atmosphere there at UT," said Amadi. "It was my first game there and it was so loud. There were so many people there and it was great. It was a very exciting game."
Amadi plans to visit Ole Miss this weekend and he will give the Rebels a look.
For now, all schools are "equal" for Amadi. He is just taking the offers in, looking at the schools that offer him, and he is not rushing through the recruiting process.
He is still focused on his season and just improving his game through the In Full Motion program.
"I can get better in every area, but I think schools like my explosive hips, how I get out of my breaks, and just how I react to the ball."
Amadi is the No. 41 corner in the 2015 class on Scout.
