    Obinnah posted in a thread about him where folks were trying to find out more about him:

    He has to be a primary in-state recruiting target for CU in 2015.

    Would love him to be our first commit for 2015.

    In the highlights looks like he has the patience to set up blocks before using his physical talents

    I'd love to see him in M2's system.

    Had to bite my tongue in response to his post in the other thread, but man could we use his speed and size. Would absolutely love for him to be a buff. I hope the coaching staff is in contact with him already.

    Time to lock up the borders.

    If Ballage was our holy grail for this season then I would think Chuk is for next season.

    I'll get that story up tonight or tomorrow. He likes CU quite a bit.

    I like him quite a bit. The 2015 in-state class looks very strong to me. At least 5 guys I like no matter what out-of-state guys show interest.

    I like his lean. I'm surprised he didn't break more first attempt tackles based on his strength. However, something doesn't seem right about the 4.39, especially after watching his tape.

    That said, I hope the staff has done their homework and pulls the trigger if he's worthy of an offer.

    At least 5. I'd add Middlemiss to that list.

    Goonie may be pissed (in the Brit sense?) following the Mayor's injury - he'll probably stop.

    Obinnah, Conway, Middlemiss and Lynott would be a nice in-state haul next year, and all seem pretty realistic right now.

    I guess a lot depends on how many RBs the coaches want to take in 2015.

    Chukwuma said he's going to play both ways as a senior, RB and S for Grandview.

    Got the story up: http://bit.ly/1dkWQhJ

    Looking forward to seeing Chukwuma play defense next season.

    Great story! Sounds like a really good, intelligent kid. I would love to have him as a Buff, and it sounds like he wants to be one. Perhaps an early commitment?

    Oh, and BTW, old Nigerian music is awesome.

    Enjoyed that story. Man with his physical measurements and videos, I'd be thrilled to see him stick to RB at CU although the article says his coaches think he'll play on the defensive side in college.

    I know this is a ridiculous and unfair comparison but he reminds me of a young Adrian Peterson. Obviously he could outgrow RB but that kid has real potential. I would put him way up on the want list for 2015. And on top of it he seems to be super keen on CU as well.

    One other point. I just finished watching his 12+ minute video. It seems the highlights were in order of his season. His sophomore year he broke his ankle. This year ( Junior year) he spent 4 weeks on the sidelines due to transfer rules.

    His film gets better as it goes on through the year and in the playoffs. Earlier in the year he ran through some arm tackles but went down quick upon real contact. He was not keeping his feet moving through contact. But as the season progresses he became a more physical runner and had more broken tackles and kept his feet under him and moving through tackles.

    Very fast, doesn't seem to dance around much, but hits the hole quick and gets to the 2nd level fast. I think he definitely has a chance to play RB at BCS level. He is a freakish athlete, already crazy strong (benches like 290 according to his Hudl highlights). I bet his senior year videos are going to blow up. Hope we get him an offer and a commitment before that happens!

    Check out around 5:30 and 9:38 or so. Hurdles a tackler both times in stride and keeps running.

    Does he really have a future on defense? He will only get bigger (weight wise).

    Could be LB although watching him play RB, he certainly has the athleticism for it but not sure he has the instincts of a LB. I still like him at RB unless he gets huge.

    Yes please.

    With Obinna

    I like the stable of backs at CU.

    Visited today too. Looks pretty good in that uniform.

    Chukwuma on his visit: "It went great!! I absolutely loved it. I wish I would've gotten offered but hopefully that'll come later."

    Looks damn good.

    If he's got the offer, Obinnah needs to pull the trigger and be a Buff.

    Edit: He's expressed a lot of interest. I would hope that as soon as an offer materialized, that he'd be a lock and not wait around to see what other opportunities are out there.
