Olaniyan picks up seventh offer

Just last week Woodberry Forest (Va.) Woodberry Forest School athlete Aramide Olaniyan received an offer from Auburn.

Auburn was the sixth school to offer the talented junior, joining the likes of Boston College, Duke, Maryland, Stanford and Wake Forest.

Now a seventh school has offered the 6-foot-2, 201-pound versatile athlete.

"Coach Beatty from West Virginia just sent me an e-mail saying he was going to offer," Olaniyan said on Wednesday afternoon during a brief conversation.

"I still need to give him a call tonight, though."
