SAN RAMON, Calif. -- After his junior season brought yet another state title to Concord (Calif.) De La Salle, jumbo athlete Devin Asiasi has blown up, to put things mildly.
He’s scored offers from Oregon, Michigan and, most recently, Alabama, to add to his offers from Vanderbilt, USC, San Jose State and Washington State.
“I just got an offer from Alabama, and I’m talking to Notre Dame right now, and Michigan,” Asiasi said at the Kenion Training 7-on-7 Kickoff event on Sunday at Dougherty Valley High School.
“It’s big,” Asiasi said of the offer from the Crimson Tide. “They’re the top school in the nation, one of the top schools in the nation, so it’s pretty big getting one from them. It boosts your confidence a little bit.”
Alabama is one of the majority of schools offering the two-way stud at tight end.
“They were talking to me about a couple of schemes,” Asiasi said. “I was talking to coach Nick Saban about it, and he was talking about a couple schemes that they’re running over there, and that they’d love to have me.”
Asiasi is not currently planning on going to any upcoming junior days, but does have some visits on tap.
“I’m looking to take a visit to Oregon during my spring break, and UCLA,” Asiasi said. “In March, I’ll probably go to Alabama, because that’s when they start their spring ball, so I’ll go over there and check that out.”
Asiasi also intends on checking out spring ball at California, which starts on March 9 and ends with the spring game on April 18.
“I’m looking to go to Cal a little bit. My dad wants me to go, and it’s been something I’ve been looking into,” Asiasi said. “Dad likes Cal, because he wants me to stay close. The Bears are good. I’ve heard they’re making a lot of big moves this season, so it’s something to definitely look into.”
Like the Crimson Tide, Cal is looking at Asiasi as a tight end.
“They’re looking to play me at slot, get me out there a little bit, because that’s what they do with their tight end guys,” Asiasi said.
