Four-Star TE Discusses Northwest Swing

De La Salle (Concord, Ca.) TE Devin Asiasi took trips to Washington, Oregon and Oregon State this weekend and updated Dawgman.com on how each visit went...



Asiasi is one of the top tight ends in the country and he recently made a swing through the Pacific Northwest to check out three schools who have made him offers.

"Washington and coach (Chris) Petersen really made me feel at home with the welcome," Asiasi said Sunday evening after returning home from his trip. "I saw the last half of the practice (on Friday) and it had lots of energy. They showed me a lot of team and family which is important to me and all coaches were making it fun to practice."

On Saturday, Asiasi made the four-hour drive south to check out Oregon State.

"I saw the end of the Oregon State spring game but my uncle, dad and cousin had a great visit with coach (Gary) Anderson and coach (Dave) Baldwin," Asiasi noted. "They had cool facilities and the game was high scoring with lots of passing plays and lots highlights. I was hyped to see how I can fit in."

Finally, on Sunday, Asiasi met up with the Oregon staff and said he was pretty impressed with what he saw.

"Oregon,this morning, was incredible," Asiasi said. "I have heard so many stories about the facilities and it was true. I had my family from area join in the unofficial and the coach (Tom) Osborne and staff were great hosts and took us on a great tour of the 'O'."

Asiasi has offers from schools across the country including the three schools he visited this weekend as well as Auburn, California, Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Tennessee, UCLA, USC and Washington State.

With all of those options in front of him, Asiasi said he's still hoping to gather information before he makes a decision.

"I'm just learning a lot about these schools and how it will fit me, not only in football but education and socially," Asiasi said. "I am just narrowing it down."

We'll have more on Asiasi in the future as he gets closer to narrowing his list of favorites down.
