HIS RECRUITING STORY
Devin Asiasi was another West Coast pull for the Wolverines. With many expecting him to stay in California, an official visit late in the process sealed things for Asiasi and the Wolverines.
Asiasi is a huge tight end target who could honestly have even more upside as a defensive end down the road. He's pushing 270 pounds and will have no problem stepping in to a college offense and being physically able to handle those battles in the trenches. Where he surprises people is with his ability to run and catch. He's a very coordinated athlete for his size and can get down the field. He also has very soft hands and will be that reliable 3rd down pass catcher every quarterback loves to have. He's a tremendous blocker and comes from a system at De La Salle where you learn to block early on or you won't play. As long as he can keep his weight down, Asiasi should be a tremendous tight end at the next level with Sunday potential.
"Coach Harbaugh was awesome. We sat down and watched film and I love how they use the tight end. They have a lot of different formations and move him around all over the field. The players there were great with me all weekend as well. It felt like a family there, they really took me in and the overall atmosphere was great. I had a great comfort level with everyone so it was a lot of fun."
It's certainly safe to say that Devin Asiasi could become an excellent tight end in a Jim Harbaugh offense. With his size right now, he could absolutely come in and play right away. Perhaps a year to learn under Harbaugh and Jake Butt could do wonders for him down the line.
