Scout.com is LIVE at the US Army All-American game in San Antonio, Texas. One of several who made their announcements, Westside wide receiver Frank Iheanacho from Houston, Texas decided that he was ready to keep in talents in state.

It’s been a long road for Houston (Tex.) Westside wide receiver Frank Iheanacho. Or perhaps it has just seemed that way.

Well that long road came to an end on Saturday for the annual US Army All-American Bowl where Iheanacho decided to take his talents to the only in-state program of his final list in Texas A&M.

In the end, it came down to LSU, Missouri, Ole Miss and Oregon to round out the Top 5 for the 6-foot-7, 220-pound Iheanacho. When talking about his road to end up at this point, once he made his debut, it was a tidal wave of interest and offer that came his way, putting him in the double-digit category from an offer standpoint fairly quickly.

So with this now done, what does ‘Nacho’ bring to the table?

“I think he brings a unique skill set that college coaches are looking for. In some situations at the receiver position a coach looks for a speed advantage,” Westside coach Mark Byrd said. “Now, with a player like Iheanacho, you have a size, speed and range advantage. With the way that defensive backs are these days, it helps to have a larger target.

“Iheanacho can provide that.”

No doubts about it as the former basketball star-turned football phenom will get the chance to continue his football career in the SEC. This past season, Iheanacho caught 47 passes for 618 yards and 15 touchdowns.
