2014 WR taking an official visit to UM this weekend

Nash Williams
Death, taxes, and Al Golden's staff recruiting in New Jersey. That's what seems to be the norm in our society nowadays. Golden continues to recruit hard in "The Garden State" as the class of 2014 recruiting season rolls on.

However with only a few short months left, the 'Canes staff is focusing on one player in particular from New Jersey.

That player is six-foot-four, 217-pound wide receiver David Njoku (Nuh~Joh~Koo) of Cedar Grove, New Jersey.

David is one of the many prospects who is taking an official visit to Miami this weekend.

"I am just looking for somewhere I can live for the next four to five years." said Njoku. "I want to see if it would be a good fit for me. I definitely want to check out the academic program."

Njoku, who de-committed from Rutgers in mid-October, has a slew of Miami coaches currently recruiting him.

"There are a lot of them." Njoku said. "Coach Barrow, Coach D'Onofrio, and Coach Carroll are all recruiting me heavy.

Although David had yet to talk to any current Miami commits or targets throughout the recruiting process, he looks forward to meeting a few of them this weekend. Especially, fellow New Jersey stars, Kiy Hester and Courtel Jenkins.

The 'Canes may get lucky and have this be Njoku's final official visit before National Signing Day.

"I have nothing planned as of yet. I may visit Ohio State during mid-January but nothing planned yet and we'll just go from after this weekend." Njoku said.

Njoku also tells me his announcement probably won't be coming before National Signing Day.

However, the 'Canes appear to be in the driver seat for this top-notch athlete.

**In my opinion, the 'Canes are coming hard after Njoku in belief that they might not land Dwyer wide receiver Johnnie Dixon. Or even longshots, Ermon Lane and Travis Rudolph. They feel good about their chances with Njoku.

Why is anyone comparing this kid to Dixon, or Rudolph? This kid is already 217 pounds. If he's a replacement for ANYONE it may be Griffin not qualifiying, but this kid looks destined for TE.
Good chance Njoku will grow into a TE. Look at his lower half *pause*

Good interview Nash
If they are seriously looking at him at WR then they must not feel to good that Griffin is going to qualify. F*CK. Griffin is a real game changer for us.
Not impressed with Njoku but I'm just a fan that doesn't know ****.
Reminds me of Marcus Davis that went to Virginia Tech
Tried to look up his tape, but Hudl highlights cost $$$$ now?
Dude is a long strider, I'll give him that.
Must be some sort of Plan B, he does not want to be left at the altar, will not let last years debacle happen again, lessons learned IMO.
If he is really 6'4 and runs a 4.47 40 then I don't see the problem
is it just me or does everyone who sees a WR prospect listed 210+ automatically think he will grow into a TE. Same thing with safety's...
