Virginia prep 2019 safety Litchfield Ajavon says Wisconsin is a 'great program' following Badgers offer

Rising junior Litchfield Ajavon is one of the next major college prospects at Alexandria (VA) Episcopal and he spoke with Scout about the latest developments in his recruitment.

Litchfield Ajavon's recruitment exploded over the past few months.

Wisconsin became the latest to offer last week.

"They're a great program and they want guys with great character," said the 6-foot, 190-pound Ajavon. "The fact that they really want guys that are good players and good people is really impressive. 

"I spoke to (tight ends) coach (Mickey) Turner and we had a good conversation. We talked about the type people he's looking for and how I'd fit well in their program. He also talked about how their players develop strong relationships with each other and said they get along well.

"I'm definitley interested in learning more about the program. Coach Turner asked me to come visit, so hopefully I'll be able to take a trip soon...maybe this summer."

Along with the Badgers, GeorgiaMichiganMichigan StateNorth CarolinaNotre DameSyracuseVirginia and Virginia Tech have offered.

His next visit will be Georgia this weekend.

"I know Georgia is a great program with a strong tradition," Ajavon said. "I've never been there and I'm looking forward to the trip. I want to see how the coaches and players interact with each other. I also want to see what the environment is like in Athens.

"(Tight ends) coach (Shane) Beamer is recruiting me and he's a great coach. When we talk, he always stresses academics and character. He's also honest with me and does whatever he can to help his players. It's not about just football with him and that's great."

Besides Georgia, he does not have any other trips scheduled.
