Asiasi Interested in L.A. Schools

Dec. 1 -- Concord (Calif.) De La Salle is home to one of the nation's top tight end prospects, regardless of class. Devin Asiasi is a talented junior two-way player and visited USC over the weekend...

Devin Asiasi is a top 100 player in the 2016 class and the top rated tight end in the West region. He's also a dominant player on the defensive line and even played quarterback last weekend for the Spartans but his future is definitely on offense.

Asiasi has blown past the double digit mark for scholarship offers and took an unofficial visit to USC this past weekend.

"It was a great trip, I spent the whole weekend there," Asiasi said Sunday night while driving back home. "The USC-Notre Dame game is a great rivalry so I really enjoyed the whole experience and the atmosphere. When I watch a game now, I'm not just watching it as a fan but trying to see how I would fit in with the offense and I like how USC uses the tight end.

"I got to be down on the field before the game and the USC fans were crazy and I loved the band too. The team played really well and were pretty dominant. I know I would have a good opportunity to play early at SC because they don't have much depth at tight end at all. I talk to Coach Tuiasosopo all the time and he's always making sure I'm aware of that."

Asiasi took in the game with his parents on Saturday and then was back on campus Sunday for a tour.

"Coach Helton showed us around and I liked the campus a lot," Asiasi said. "We saw the facilities, the weight room and talked about the academics. They treated my parents really well too so we all had a really good time. I don't have a leader right now but USC is definitely one of my top schools and I plan to visit again over the summer.

"I'm in no hurry to commit though and I want to take my official visits. I know I'll probably visit USC and UCLA too but I have a lot of time before I need to figure that out. UCLA is on me hard and I want to check them out and California is another school that I already visited that is recruiting me heavily. Main factors for me along with early playing time will be the environment and being comfortable. I want a coaching staff that I feel good about and a place that feels like family. Academics will play a role too and a school where I'll be able to grow on and off the field."
