Oswego DB discusses Western Illinois commitment

An unofficial visit to Macomb last month was enough to bring clarity to Sunday’s college decision for Josh Shodipo.

After announcing a verbal commitment to Western Illinois, the Oswego (Oswego, IL) defensive back pointed towards a variety of factors which made the Leathernecks the best fit for him.

“I went out there for a visit in July, and it went well,” he said. “I think it’s a good scheme fit for me, and I could possibly see the field really early. They want me there and I felt welcomed, so I decided to commit.”

Shodipo plans to provide competition at cornerback, special teams and possibly safety.

Earlier this year, the 2018 prospect took a trip to spring practice during April and recalled the experience.

“I think it’s a great program and the coaching is top notch,” he said. “I was impressed by the intensity they bring to practice. Their DB’s were well coached and showed good technique, so that shows their coaching works, and sticks with their players. All in all, it’s a good program with a great coaching staff.”

Shodipo also holds offers from Indiana State, SIU and South Dakota State.
