      Per ESPN:

      Okotcha is an underrated cornerback prospect with very good zone skills when projecting for the college level. He lacks ideal size but is aggressive and plays bigger on film. Really understands the position with a high football IQ as well as natural coverage awareness skills.

        His size and speed looks impressive, offer list not so much.

          NICE!!!!!! Another potential TX hammer! Let's see if Cam can run some game on him and help him "reconsider" his commitment to Wisconsin...

                If his height and speed are legitimate, then he is worthy. You can coach a guy who runs a 4.47 and is six foot.

                  If they offered him on the visit, then, his size is got to be legit. Kelly likes to offer after seeing the athletes in person.

                      If they offered him this late I think we have a chance and He must have a lot of potential... do we know if and when he will decide

                        He's still firmly "committed" to Wisconsin, so he has decided. Now it's our time to put in work. Chuck Martin can/has/will deliver.

                          He decided back in August... that's the way we should look at it until further notice.

                            I think Cam Mcdaniel will help too but I bet he has a secondary time table Lynch did so did Hayes

                                We need DBs in this class, this kid looks like he would fit in nicely. Cam needs to get all over him.

                                                Working our way into Texas. Never a bad idea. I heard they had some talent in that state.

There wasn't another DB who could beat him in the 40. Super competitive, goes & gets the ball & will drop the hammer on WR's. As for playoff numbers, he had quite a few tackles, but no one threw at him. I saw him walk down Brandon Carter from the opposite side of the field in the Trinity game on Friday (Carter is an OU WR commit). Okotcha is a stud!!!
