Plano (Tex.) West five-star running back Soso Jamabo has his pick of the litter when it comes to playing college football. Jamabo has officially visited UCLA, Texas and Notre Dame, with the Bruins and Longhorns reportedly having the lead for his services, per 247.That didn’t stop Jamabo from having some fun when asked about his finalists. He named two schools, just not the ones people would expect:That’s right, Jamabo claims he’s down to the University of Phoenix and ITT Tech. Not sure if either school can compete with the tradition, weather or gameday atmosphere of UCLA or Texas, but neither program has lost in years and might lead the country in television advertisements. Jamabo even took things a step further on Twitter this afternoon, posting this hilarious edited photo playing up the whole mock situation:I just wanna thank God.. pic.twitter.com/cdnMiGzNQ4— SOMI JaMITCHELL (@Soso_Jamabo1) January 26, 2015If Jamabo’s budding football career doesn’t work out, comedy could be a decent backup plan.
