from Ardrey Kell high school(N.C.) will announce his college choice on Tuesday at 6 PM according to his twitter account. He was originally going to announce his decision on April 30.

His five finalists in alphabetical order are Clemson, Georgia, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ole Miss.

Tuesday 6 PM Update: Okwara committed to Notre Dame via his twitter account.

He has offers from Boston College, California, Clemson, Duke, Elon, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, West Virginia and others.

Okwara visited Clemson for its Junior Day back in early March and came away very impressed. "My visit to Clemson was great, from the start of the day till the end," said Okwara. "I got to watch them practice and them do board drills and it was exciting watching the team get after it."

The 4-star defensive end was able to spend some quality time with Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables. "I got to talk to coach Venables and he talked to me individually about how I fit in everything they do in their defense. I play like I'm 240 and hit like it, run fast and that I could fit the position like Vic Beasley."

In 2014, he had 90 tackles, 10 sacks, 3 pass deflections and two forced fumbles.

Okwara has tons of potential as he has only been playing football since the eighth grade.
