Amajoyi by the Numbers

San Bernardino running back Chike Amajoyi had a big game against Banning this past week, scoring three touchdowns in the Falcons' first win. He owns five offers and knows four schools he will officially visit. One trip was set but will be rescheduled. Two schools stand on top for him.

San Bernardino (Calif.) Aquinas High School running back/safety Chike Amajoyi (6-0, 223) patiently awaits offer number six, still sitting on the five he had prior to the season.

"Colorado, Colorado State and Idaho have called but haven't said anything about offering yet," Amajoyi updates.  "I still have some good options though."

Those options are offers from Stanford, Washington, Arizona State, Utah and UTEP.

"I guess I would say that Stanford and Washington are still standing out, but I'm pretty wide open," Amajoyi says.

The San Bernardino running back was offered by the Cardinal earlier in the summer and between school and football, he has been making the time to work on the application for admission.

"I'm just about done with it," Amajoyi reports.  "I plan on going up there for an official visit.  I just haven't talked with the coaches about when we're setting it up."

Amajoyi had set a trip to Arizona State, but a higher priority and power conflicted with that visit.

"That is the weekend of our homecoming, and my date wouldn't have liked that," Amajoyi allows.

He still does plan to visit Tempe and will be scheduling the official visit for later in the season.  Amajoyi also plans to visit Washington, though after his season completes.  Utah is the fourth school likely to get a visit from him.

"I do plan to take all five trips," he forecasts.  "I'm thinking about where I'll take my last trip."

In the meantime, Amajoyi is focusing on his senior season, one that got off to a bit of a rough start for the Falcons.

"We're 1-2, but we won our last game 38-0," Amajoyi shares.  "We're getting better but we still have a long way to go.  As the weeks go on, I can tell we're getting better."

The six-foot athlete has been playing both running back and safety for Aquinas, which has been a point of discussion in his own recruitment.

"Most schools say I can play either way," Amajoyi says.  "Schools are recruiting me as an athlete but feel my most dominant position is as a running back.  I can play free safety or strong safety.  I only played a few games last year as an outside linebacker, but played anything from safety to defensive end.  I prefer to play running back."

In the last game for Aquinas, Amajoyi rushed for 78 yards on only seven carries and scored a pair of touchdowns against Banning.  He also returned a kickoff 75 yards for a third touchdown.

He has rushed for 260 yards on 42 carries and has scored five touchdowns on the season.

Amajoyi currently has a 3.9 weighted GPA (3.6 unweighted) and ranks 11th in his class at Aquinas.  During his junior year, he took three AP classes and two honors classes.  His senior year has a whopping five AP classes on the schedule.  Amajoyi scored an 1870 on his first crack at the SAT earlier this spring.  He plans to take the test again in this fall.
