The Mountaineers made a surprise visit to Lakota West (Ohio) High School to offer the talented lineman in person.
"My coach called me down to his office and told me I had an offer from West Virginia," he said. "Then I saw West Virginia's coach (Shannon Dawson) there. He was telling me about the school and how nice the campus was. Then he offered me. It all sounded great."
"The offer from West Virginia is a big deal," Asafo-Adjei described. "That's a team I watch. To get an offer from West Virginia means a lot because it also means I'm working hard and coaches are recognizing me. I'm looking forward to taking a visit."
Asafo-Adjei (6-4, 295 lbs.), who projects as a guard at the collegiate level, has seen a flurry of offers and interest the past several weeks.
Though still a few months away, Asafo-Adjei is eager to see schools this summer, taking visits and participating in various camps.
"I'm definitely take some visits to schools I have offers from," Asafo-Adjei said. "I'd also like to take a visit to Oklahoma and Arkansas because they're schools I have interest in."
