1. Samson Okunlola, 5-star OT
Obviously the No. 1 target left on the board has to be five-star offensive tackle Samson Okunlola from Massachusetts.
The talented prospect from the northeast has been hearing from just about everyone and he looked like a Miami lock over the summer, but that seems to have cooled off a bit. That might bode well for Michigan State as the staff is still putting the full-court press on him, but they’re going to have their work cut out as he’s also high on Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Oregon.
Basically, it’s a who’s who of elite teams pushing for Okunlola.
And it’s easy to see why that is. He’s an elite offensive line talent with plenty of untapped potential and he’s going to be an instant contributor wherever he goes. If he does pick Michigan State, I’d be shocked if he wasn’t starting the second he stepped foot on campus.
That has to be the No. 1 selling point right now.
Okunlola is ranked the No. 17 overall recruit and third-best offensive tackle in the 2023 class.
