Douglas Talks About First Trip

Cypress (Calif.) offensive lineman Jamil Douglas takes an official visit to Arizona State and talks about his trip to Tempe...

Cypress (Calif.) offensive lineman Jamil Douglas (6-5, 255), took his first official visit this weekend, heading out to Arizona State.

"It was really cool out there," said Douglas. "I like Arizona as an area. I like the program. I know they're trying get back to where they were. Everything about the players is cool."

Douglas was hosted by freshman Corey Adams, but spent plenty of time with the coaching staff.

"I spent a lot of time with Coach (Gregg) Smith, Coach (Matt) Lubick and (Coach) Dennis Erickson," said Douglas. "Every time we sat down to eat, they were there. They were showing me around the most."

The commit to Utah said he didn't feel any pressure from the ASU coaches.

"They told me they're not going to put any pressure on me, they want me to make the decision on my own," said Douglas.

Douglas committed to Utah during the summer, but thinking he may have committed too early has caused him to want to take some visits.

"I might have committed a little too early," said Douglas. "This was my first visit, so I want to take the visits so I'm sure about my decision when I make it. I know with both I have a chance to play early because they both need offensive lineman. I haven't changed my mind, I'm still committed to Utah though."

Douglas also has offers from Nebraska, San Diego State and Towson along with Utah and Arizona State.

"I'm visiting Utah in January but I'm not sure about Nebraska because I haven't heard anything from them in 2-3 weeks. And I'm supposed to go to San Diego State in January sometime."

Douglas played tight end and defensive end this year for Cypress, but coaches see him as an athletic left tackle, where he's being recruited.

Regardless of where he picks, his family is behind him.

"They're behind me and support me wherever I go," said Douglas.
