— Colleges are starting to take notice of Edmond Santa Fe's Michael Onuoha after his performance at Oklahoma's camp this summer.

The 6-foot-7, 225-pound defensive end and receiver has moved into The Oklahoman's Super 30 at No. 29.

He said he's received interest from Oklahoma, Missouri and Tulsa so far.

“The only camp I really went to this summer was the OU camp,” Onuoha said. “I did pretty well. ... They want to see more footage of me before they make any offer.”

Onuoha missed a good chunk of his junior season after separating his shoulder in 2010. Also a standout basketball player, he returned in time for the Wolves' hoops season. He hit 63.8 percent of his field goal attempts and averaged 8.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Onuoha said playing football in college is his first choice.

“I'd rather go for football, but if for some odd reason something doesn't happen with football, basketball will be my secondary,” Onuoha said.

Edmond Santa Fe coach Lance Manning said Onuoha will have lots of opportunity if he performs well during the early part of the season.
