Rising Interest

West Chester (Ohio) junior offensive lineman George Asafo-Adjei continued to pile up offers, as West Virginia became the latest school to jump into the mix. He shares his thoughts with BlueGoldNews.com.

George Asafo-Adjei is witnessing his recruitment heat up the last several weeks. Fresh off receiving an offer from Minnesota, West Virginia became the latest school to join the field.

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.

In addition to West Virginia and Minnesota, he also holds offers from Kentucky, Western Michigan, Toledo and Akron, while receiving interest from a variety of programs.

"I have interest from Arkansas, Nebraska, Duke and Ohio State," he said. "I have a lot of schools checking me out right now."

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."
