MIDWEST CITY — Carl Albert running back David Oku has dropped Florida State from the list of schools he’s considering. The 5-10, 186-pounder also said Michigan is back into consideration.

“They are playing games,” Oku said of Florida State. “The recruiting game is a business and you have to treat it like a business.

“You can’t fool around when you’re talking about were you’ll spend the next four years of your life.”

Oku felt he was getting the run around from the Seminole coaching staff, thus decided to cut ties with the team which was his childhood favorite.

Michigan joins Tennessee, Nebraska and Louisville in Oku’s top four.

The senior said he is hoping to visit Michigan on Oct. 4 when the Wolverines host Illinois. He changed his mind about the Wolverines after watching Rich Rodriguez’s spread offense against Utah.

It was a busy weekend for Oku, who visited Louisville during the Cardinals 27-2 loss to Kentucky last Sunday.

“It was cool,” Oku said of his visit to Louisville. “The only thing was it seemed a little dead, I think because it was a Sunday game.”
