UW Impresses Top-Rated West Coast TE Prospect

De La Salle (Concord, Ca.) Devin Asiasi, the West's top tight end prospect, was on hand for last weekend's Las Vegas Pylon 7v7 and after things were completed, he talked about his favorites which include Washington...

"Washington is one of my top schools," Asiasi told Dawgman.com. "I really like the coaches, especially coach (Jordan) Paopao and coach (Chris) Petersen.

"I don't know a lot about the program, but I like what they have to say and I've formed a good relationship with them since they started recruiting me and I just really like where their program is headed."

In addition to the Huskies, Asiasi listed several other schools as favorites.

"Washington, California, UCLA, USC, Oregon and Alabama all are standing out for me," Asiasi said. "They all are great programs and they have been building good relationships with me."

At 6'4" and 264 pounds, Asiasi is already a big prospect and he used his size and surprising athleticism and soft hands to haul in 16 receptions for 264 yards and two touchdowns on a team that didn't throw the ball much.

"We run a lot, so you have to be prepared to block and that's something we take pride in," Asiasi noted. "I just love to compete and getting out here (for the 7v7 tournament) was fun because there's a lot of great players and talented guys out here."

Asiasi said he hopes to make the trip up to Seattle next month for Junior Day, but if that doesn't happen he said he'll look to come up during the summer.

"I really want to get up there for (the Junior Day event on April 18th), but I still need to work it out with my parents," Asiasi said. "If I don't make it for that, then I'll be up in the summer because I really want to see the campus and school for myself and to meet with the coaches and see the facilities."
