The beginning of a rather lengthy in-depth article:
Jeff Hafley knew he had something special in Jeff Okudah when, not long after he was hired as Ohio State’s co-defensive coordinator last winter, he got a text from his star cornerback.
“It’s a Saturday morning and I’m moving into my new house and I’m getting a text, ‘Hey are you in the office? You want to watch film?’ ” recalled Hafley, now the head coach at Boston College. “It was like, ‘Holy crap, who is this kid?’ ”
Hafley didn’t meet up with Okudah that morning; he was busy entertaining his kids. But the two spent enough time together in the past 12 months for Hafley, who coached Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman in their NFL careers, to believe the Detroit Lions landed a cornerback destined for similar greatness with the [No. 3 pick ] in last month’s NFL draft.
Sounds like this kid has what it takes to achieve greatness.
