The Sugar Land, Texas product talked with us about that tonight and also filled us in on how his senior season went. http://www.scout.com/college/football/recruiting/story/723149-okpara-made-a-decision-for-his-future 2047 Matt Alkire http://www.scout.com/college/football/recruiting/story/723149-okpara-made-a-decision-for-his-future Fri, 25 Jan 2008 02:35:00 GMT 1 73 Football Recruiting recruiting Junior Okpara Scout Back From B.C.

Unofficial visitors will become a thing of the past in a couple of weeks. Mostly because when the coaches at Nebraska come back they will be neck deep in getting ready for fall camp and the season. Before then, Nebraska might be expecting a few more, big unofficial visitors in Lincoln. One said tonight he is still trying to get to Lincoln. http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/660602-huskers-expecting-visit-from-okpara 2047 Bryan Munson http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/660602-huskers-expecting-visit-from-okpara Mon, 23 Jul 2007 01:18:00 GMT 1 204 Nebraska nebraska Junior Okpara Scout Arkansas hosting Okpara Ugo "Junior" Okpara (6-1, 180, 4.48) is one of the country's top 25 prep cornerbacks and is currently on an unofficial visit to the University of Arkansas - one of his four finalists along with Nebraska, Virginia and Boston College. http://www.scout.com/college/arkansas/story/660083-arkansas-hosting-okpara 2047 Dudley E.

Sugar Land , Texas standout Junior Okpara would help to satisfy that quite nicely. He's narrowed down his list at this point, and we talked to him about the process of recruiting and a change in mind he's had about when he'd like to decide. http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/657203-brr-q-a-with-cb-junior-okpara 2047 Steve Ryan http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/657203-brr-q-a-with-cb-junior-okpara Mon, 09 Jul 2007 05:11:00 GMT 0 204 Nebraska nebraska Recruiting Sig Scout Recruiting: Okpara Has Narrowed It To Four Defensive back Ugo Okpara of Sugar Land (Dulles), Texas said he has a top four and he has a strategy on what he is doing. The 6-1, 180-pound corner or safety prospect is going to be moving fast and moving often in the month of July. http://www.scout.com/college/oklahoma-state/story/654759-recruiting-okpara-has-narrowed-it-to-four 2047 Robert Allen http://www.scout.com/college/oklahoma-state/story/654759-recruiting-okpara-has-narrowed-it-to-four Wed, 27 Jun 2007 02:21:00 GMT 1 181 Oklahoma State oklahomastate Scout Huskers will host Texas CB in July If there is a fad around cornerbacks, and defensive backs in general, it might be size. Receivers are getting taller and while you can still have explosiveness in the vertical jump, nothing helps you match up well more than size. Nebraska has their eyes set on a tall cornerback from Texas and he is set to see Lincoln in July. http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/654144-huskers-will-host-texas-cb-in-july 2047 Bryan Munson http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/654144-huskers-will-host-texas-cb-in-july Mon, 25 Jun 2007 01:28:00 GMT 1 204 Nebraska nebraska Huskers after tall CB from Texas The theory goes that if you add height, you lose speed. And maybe not straight line speed, but quickness through the hips. It's becoming increasingly important to have closer to 6-foot cornerbacks than not to defend 6-foot-3+ wide receivers. While athleticism makes up some difference, it's key to have that size to bump and run effectively. http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/648100-huskers-after-tall-cb-from-texas 2047 Bryan Munson http://www.scout.com/college/nebraska/story/648100-huskers-after-tall-cb-from-texas Fri, 01 Jun 2007 02:12:00 GMT 1 204 Nebraska nebraska NEBRASKA RECRUITING Scout Okpara's Offer Total Reaches 9 He can hit. He can cover. And he loves being on an island.
