Caring Is Creepy: Have a Seat Michael Ojemudia

There's also the late groundswell of offers -- albeit modest -- showing that he might have just flown under the radar until his senior season. More importantly, he's a Phil Parker recruit for a Phil Parker position in Phil Parker's recruiting territory, and Phil rarely misses on guys he knows he'll coach. Micah Hyde was one of these guys. Yes, Bob Sanders was, too. They are hardly the only ones.

COMPARABLE. Nico Law was a tweener. At least when he was first recruited. He did work as a safety moving into linebacker position occasionally (while still on the team). Nico was a higher rated recruit but he developed into more than a role player at Iowa. The battle for playing time at safety is wide open and Ojemudia will get a shot to compete for time as a backup right away.
