UW Scholarship Extended To Irabor

The University of Wyoming's football program continues to offer early scholarships and over the weekend extended one to Upland High School (California) DB/WR Osahon Irabor, according to Upland's recruiting coordinator Mike Esquivel. He told GoWyoGo the prospect is excited about the Cowboys interest and Irabor looks forward to learning more about UW.

"It's great to see that colleges across the country are taking notice of my talents. It's been a goal of mine to work hard in everything I do regarding football during the season and off the season,"Irabor said. "It's great to see my hard work paying off. I received questions from different people this past month asking me if IM only a Pac-10 player. Reason being is my first four offers were from Pac-10 schools. With my recent offer from Wyoming, I want to make it clear to the colleges who are interested in me that IM wide open."

Irabor brings an athleticm and excellent speed to the table, and could be looked at in a variety of skilled positions. He runs a sub 4.5 yard dash and a verticle ove 30 inches. The Cowboys are the fifth to offer the California standout and he's now taking a bigger interest in the Mountain West Conference.

"I do not plan to commit early and plan on researching every school that has offer me before I start narrowing it down,"Irabor said. "I have done some research on the Mountain West Conference and there are some schools including Wyoming that IM interested in. Utah, New Mexico, UNLV and San Diego State."

The skilled athlete said New Mexico's will check him out on May 14th, while San Diego State's staff will check him out shortly.
Irabor is a fast, quick-twitched, talented two-way player at the high school level shining at both corner and wide receiver, but could be destined to defense with his cover skills. He is listed at 5 foot 10, 173 pounds.

Irabor has offers from California, Arizona State, Oregon, Arizona, and the Wyoming Cowboys.
