Onyeali nears commitment

Denver (CO) Mullen do everything defender Nduka Onyeali is getting closer and closer to shutting down the recruiting process. Recently Syracuse made the trip to Colorado to share some last minute thoughts with the prospect.

"Coach Bob Casullo and Coach Marrone came out to see me," Onyeali said. "The visit with Syracuse went real well they got to meet my family which was a good thing."

During the visit there was a lot of things talked about and Onyeali spoke about a couple items they talked about.

"We just talked about me going to Syracuse and we talked about who they were looking at because they are changing the program around. Then just meeting with my family that was pretty much it."

Right now at Syracuse there is no defensive line coach set up for the three star prospect to ask questions to, but according to Onyeali the Orange are going to try and sure up the situation quickly.

"They said that they were going to try and do it as soon as possible. They said that they were going to try and get it done before the New Year."

After the in home visit with the Syracuse coaches what are the Colorado products thoughts about the Big East program

"I still like them a lot and that is why they are in my top two teams right now."

The other school joining Syracuse in the final two is Arizona State. The Sun Devil coaches came to see Onyeali the next day. Even though the coaches from the Pac-10 school stopped by it was a different visit than the Syracuse one.

"Arizona State came to my school just to say hey."

The visits were a little different and one of the visits actually merged into a second visit.

"The visit from Syracuse at my house was more formal [than the Arizona State visit] and I also went to Jonny's house with them."

How exactly is Jonny Miller handling everything, is he telling his teammate all about the Orange or is he taken it easy?

"He is just taking it easy, but Jonny is going to say little things now and then, but they don't affect me."

What exactly is the defensive prospect looking for in a school that will put them over the top?

"I really do not know still. If I knew than I would probably make my decision now."

With the final two schools coming in for visits recently Onyeali is getting closer to making a decision.

"I am getting closer. Probably the first week of January is going to be when I make my decision."
