    Evidence Njoku talks Miami

    EJ.jpg

    A player who has both Miami Hurricanes fans and NFL scouts excited about this upcoming season is redshirt sophomore tight end David Njoku, whose freakish athletic ability has given him a chance to be one of the biggest weapons in college football next season.

    Just like his brother David was, Evidence Njoku is a 3-star recruit out of Cedar Grove High School in New Jersey. Unlike his brother though, Evidence is more of a lanky wide receiver.

    “I would say that I’m a long, athletic receiver with a big catch radius. I wouldn’t compare myself to any NFL players, but my body type is similar to A.J. Green because we have the same type of long arms and long strides,” said Evidence.

    Although the personality similarities between David and Evidence are evident, the younger Njoku broke down the differences between him and his brother on the field.

    “I don’t really get annoyed when people compare me to my brother because we are two different players. When he was my age, he was stocky. He was weighing 215 as a junior. I’m around 189-190, but I’m quicker than him. He developed into a tight end and he’s 245-250 so I don’t think I could get up there. I’ve always been faster than him,” said Evidence.

    One of nine siblings, Evidence explained that in his family, success is based off the principle of hard work.

    “Hard work has always been something big in my family. My sister just graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology up in New Jersey, my oldest brother graduated from Cornell as a brain surgeon, my other sisters are working, and obviously David is working hard too at Miami,” he said.”

    Njoku spoke about his relationship with the coaches at Miami, as he is taking notice that the staff has made him a priority in this recruiting class.

    “I talk to Coach Dugans almost every day. I talk to Coach Richt and Coach Hartley a lot. Coach Kool too. They are really cool guys and they are recruiting me really hard,” said Njoku. “Coach Dugans tells me every day why he wants me and what I can be for them as an end-zone threat. Some people would say ‘oh they only want him because his brother is there’, but the coaches have made it really clear that they want me as well.”

    Other than Miami, the remainder of Njoku’s top 10 is Rutgers, Penn State, Georgia, Boston College, Tennessee, Missouri, Virginia Tech, Iowa State, and Pittsburgh. As far what will separate any of those schools from the pack, Njoku described what he is looking for in a school.

    “There’s a lot of aspects in what I’m looking for in a school like how many receivers are graduating and pretty much how I will be used, whether it’s as an X-receiver or Y-receiver. Obviously education is important too,” he said.

    The 6-4, 190-pound receiver said he will visit Miami for a camp in late July. He also said that he plans to have a much clearer picture of his recruitment after the summer.

    Njoku explained that even though the fact that his brother being at Miami would not be an ultimate deciding factor, it is something that he has thought about.

    “David is doing great for himself. He said they are going to use him a lot more in the offense now. At this point, I have relationships of my own with most coaches across the country and I feel comfortable at any school, but that would be really cool to play with him,” Evidence said.

    Is he one of our top Wr targets or is he just a back up plan?

    They sure have been blessed physically. Seems like a family of achievers as well.

    Like to see him making the winning catch in the National Championship Game with his brother delivering one of the bone crushers on the safety to free him--preferably Notre Dame or Ohio State..

    exactly! I was and still am always preaching that there are 10-15 high end potential possibilities for skill positions in our own backyard every year...we never need to go anywhere. So i was like a lot of you - What the hell? Why are we taking this guy? when David came here..but sheeeeeet, if i didn't learn my lesson. ANY AND ALL NJOKUS ARE TAKES FROM HERE ON OUT!

    I think he'll be pretty good at the next level, just not for us.

    Out of all the WR prospects I think he's the best athlete of them all. Height/weight/speed

    Considering how Richt seems to love tall wideouts, I would say the odds greatly favor him being in this class.

    All this take talk. It's always funny to me how someone says something on a message board and then people parrot it.

    He isnt david. Just because his brother ended up being good doesnt mean he will. Jordan was the best ever and his sons were trash.

    Just going over some of these recruits videos, and everyone knows the stars etc. But i like to look at the under the radar kids. This kid could be a star for us. He's lanky and has really long arms. And it seems hard work his a family trait. The competition is not great, but thats not the only thing to use and judge a prospect. Dugans and Richt know a little about recruiting WR.

    Ermon Lane played against great competition btw

    People bashed his brother, even though he was an elite track athlete that clearly had football skills and he is looking like he can be a first or second day draft pick when he comes out.

    Now they are doing the same thing to his brother. Hilarious.

    I don't recall people bashing his brother too much. I recall everyone loving his athleticism at a position that rarely has it. With evidence, we are taking a kid at a position where skill abounds in the south and in Florida and at a position of need. The fact that he did not camp with us at paradise (iirc) compounds the concern, IMO.

    That said, it's a nice take - I would just feel more comfortable if another top guy was in place to complement.
