On Tuesday night, four-star center Cliff Omoruyi cut his recruiting list to three schools — Arizona State, Auburn and Rutgers — trimming longtime finalists Kentucky and UConn from consideration.
Since then, Arizona State has emerged as the clear favorite to land Omoruyi’s commitment, according to recruiting analysts and experts. The Sun Devils already had the majority of predictions in Omoruyi’s recruitment before Tuesday’s announcement, but they now have all 17 picks across his 247Sports Crystal Ball page and Rivals.com Future Cast page, including predictions in their favor from national experts Eric Bossi, Corey Evans, Andrew Slater, Jerry Meyer and Brian Snow.
Omoruyi is the No. 41 overall recruit in the 2020 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. There is no specific date set for his college announcement.
