David Oku was ready to set the record straight when reached by telephone on Wednesday night.
The tailback from Carl Albert High School in Midwest City, Okla., has not committed to any of the colleges recruiting him, including Tennessee.
“I don’t know where that stuff is coming from,” Oku said of the persistent Internet rumors to the contrary. “I’m not committed anywhere.”
Oku said he will announce his decision next Wednesday. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound tailback is choosing between Louisville, Michigan, Nebraska and …
“Tennessee somewhat,” Oku said, “but not that much though.”
The Vols were thought to be in good shape with Oku early this summer. That was before UT picked up Jarvis Giles from Gaither High School in Tampa, Fla.
Both are considered among the top-100 prospects in the nation.
