Ayeni Will Visit South Florida

Terry Ayeni, a Junior-College defensive lineman from New Mexico Military Institute, will take an official visit to the University of South Florida before Signing Day.

At 6-foot-4, 260-pounds, New Mexico Military Institute defensive lineman, Terry Ayeni, is a versatile athlete that possesses the ability to slide inside to play defensive tackle or could be just as effective on the edge providing a consistent pass rush at defensive end.

The Junior-College defensive lineman visited the Northern Illinois Huskies over the weekend and has the Iowa State Cyclones up next this weekend, whom he met with in his home last night.

"It was great," Ayeni told Trey Scott of AllCyclones.com. "[Iowa State] has opportunity, history, they're a well-known school and they're in the Big 12. This weekend I'll find out what else I can like about them. So far, I like everything about them."

A school that's sparked Ayeni's interest as of late is the South Florida Bulls, who'll have the last opportunity to dazzle the defensive lineman before he inks his signature on Feb. 5 for National Signing Day.

"Yeah, on the 31st I'm going to take a trip down to South Florida," Ayeni said. "They're trying to build a team that competes in that conference. They play some big schools and they brought in some JUCO guys that I've played against. I've done my research and they're pretty good. I like that they're trying to build a winning program. Their coaches are pretty cool and I like some of the stuff they have over there from a education standpoint."

With two visits still to go, Ayeni isn't quite ready to name a leader in his recruitment.

"Right now, I like every school that I'm speaking with," Ayeni said. "I won't know until the last week of recruiting who my top school is and everything."
