Keller Timber Creek wide receiver Erik Ezukanma exploded on the scene last season and had a prolific rise in becoming one of the best wide receiver prospects in the state.
Ezukanma garnered 100 receiving yards or more in four of his first five games and from then on was an outstanding “x-factor” in Timber Creek’s potent offense. Ezukanma, the District 3-6A Offensive MVP was one of the many talented athletes that attended The Opening in Frisco this past Sunday.
When asked what was it that exactly led to his stellar season that resulted in 88 receptions for 1,447 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns as well as 383 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns, Ezukanma proclaimed it was humility, work ethic and teammates.
“It was really just me coming in humble. Before the season I didn’t do so well but I stayed humble. We practiced all summer, my quarterback made us all practice a lot. “
Ezukanma may have not received an invitation to the final stage of The Opening but he did have an exceptional outing especially in some of the one-on-one drills.
For Ezukanma it was nothing more than merely going out there and putting forth his best effort. “It’s a learning experience and I just try my best,” said Ezukanma in regards to his outlook on his day at The Opening.
Despite several DI offers beginning to pile up on him, Ezukanma remains focused and has his sights set on having an even better season with the same character that helped Keller Timber Creek advance to the second round this past season. Though he knows that opponents will be ready to challenge him, Ezukanma is more than ready for the task ahead.
“I’m looking forward to the double teams. I have a big target on my back now so I have to work hard and stay humble.
Ezukanma holds offers from Arkansas, Ole Miss, Kansas, Texas A&M and TCU.
