The Miami Hurricanes added another Njoku to the program this weekend as 2017 WR Evidence Njoku
(6-4, 190) committed to Mark Richt and staff on Monday.
"At first I was going to commit to a school in September, but once I got out there and David being there, it was a factor," said Njoku.
"It was a surprise to everybody, even to me."
Although Evidence did not participate in the camp on Saturday night, one moment from the weekend stuck out to him in particular.
"I got to have a conversation with Jeremy Shockey. He was telling me about The U and all that so it really meant a lot," he said.
Having an older brother at the school was definitely something that helped Miami, but it was not necessarily the deciding factor. Was his family excited that he chose a program that they are familiar with?
"Yes, of course. David and everyone else was happy. But at the same time, I don't even know what's going to happen with him after this season," he explained.
Njoku said that he has talked to the Miami coaches "almost every day" since the Hurricanes offered. He keeps in contact most with Mark Richt, Ron Dugans, Todd Hartley, and Craig Kuligowski.
One of the advantages to Njoku having a brother on the team was that he was able to be around the players a good amount.
"I felt so comfortable in the atmosphere and being around the team. Everyone was vibing out there," Njoku said. "I had the chance to talk with Jack Allison
and we had a good conversation."
Although Njoku is a different player than his brother as more of a lanky, rangy receiver with deep speed, that has not stopped the comparisons to his brother David from coming in.
"Fans will be fans. If they want to compare me to someone, they're just going to have to wait and see for themselves."
"The U is going to be raw in the next few years. For example, Jack and Evan (Shirreffs) are really good quarterbacks. The commitment N'Kosi Perry
-- I heard he's a complete savage. I'm excited for the future," Njoku said.
Njoku recently transferred from Cedar Grove HS in New Jersey to Wayne Hills. He added that he is unsure if he will take his official visits.
