Ovie Oghoufu and Trey (Walter) Walker III sign early letters of intent

Ovie Oghoufu (pictured above left) and Trey (Walter) Walker III signed letters of intent this week at the Farmington Hills high school.

Oghoufu will attend the University of Notre Dame in January, 2018, and will play football. Information on Notre Dame’s website recaps his career as a Hawk, which included 106 tackles and 11 sacks on defense, and 32 receptions for 529 yards and seven touchdowns on offense during his senior year.

“Oghoufo comes from one of the top high school programs in the state of Michigan, which means you know he has been well coached up to this point. He is a versatile, tough, quick defender who can get sideline to sideline as well as attack off the edge,” said ESPN Recruiting AnalystTom Van Haaren.

Walker will start playing baseball at Kentucky State University in the Fall, 2018. The KSU website notes that the shortstop hit .385 with eight doubles, three triples, 21 RBI and 19 stolen bases last spring.

“Trey will come in and provide depth and athleticism in our middle infield next year,” said head coach Rob Henry. “He also plays football, which means he has yet to scratch the surface of his baseball potential fully. Trey played for an excellent summer program (Michigan Bulls), which along with his experience at Farmington, helps continue our tradition of getting top-notch athletes from Michigan.”
