Schools not giving up on Owusu

Thousand Oaks (Calif.) Oaks Christian wide receiver Francis Owusu was never fond of the recruiting process. Which likely led to his decision to commit to Stanford in June.

Nebraska, UCLA and Vanderbilt are all still recruiting Owusu.

Since that commitment Owusu has not wavered one bit and hasn't really considered taking any other visits.

Now that his high school career is in the books will there be any changes to that decision?

"I'm pretty set on Stanford," Owusu said. "I know I'm going to take my official visit there in January. I'm not sure I'm going to take any others, but I'll let you know if that changes."

The academic requirements at Stanford can be so difficult, most commits will take other visits just in case they are not admitted. Owusu said that won't be the case with him unless something drastic changes.

Despite the commitment, that hasn't stopped schools like Nebraska, UCLA and Vanderbilt from continuing to recruit the three-star receiver.

"Those schools are trying to get me to visit still," he said. "But I'm not really paying attention to any of that."

Owusu said he worked on several little things this season such as his route running and getting in and out of his breaks.

He is excited to watch the Cardinal head to Autzen to face top-ranked Oregon.

"It's been an up and down season for Stanford but they are looking good now. I'm definitely excited to see this game, especially since Oregon beat us last year."
