Nwokeji Talks Commitment
"I was being recruiting by UCLA, Stanford, Villanova, Virginia and Connecticut and a good number of Ivy League schools throughout the year and they had come into see me, but I started talking to Coach (Mike) Foley in December and he invited me to junior day," Nwokeji said. "I went down to junior day after that and I that's when I got my written offer from them."
"They asked me to come back for another junior day to see more of the campus and my family came with me for the second time and we all loved it there," Nwokeji stated. "The facilities impressed me more than anything right off the bat. They're just so big and the effort put into them is just so ridiculous. The equipment is state of the art and everything that Connecticut put together is absolutely top-notch for their student-athletes. My parents were amazed by everything to and they said that the other schools we visited couldn't even compare to Connecticut."
"I wanted to go into my senior year knowing that I already had my decision made and I already knew that Connecticut was where I wanted to go, so in June I decided to let Coach Foley know that I was committing," Nwokeji explained. "He was very happy and so was my head coach. I got to talk to Head Coach Randy Edsall a day later and he was very excited about it as well. I like that the staff is family oriented and they also seem to have a great relationship with their team. They're definitely people that I can see myself playing for in the future."
Nwokeji starts at both left and right tackle and also starts at defensive end.
