"It was everything I thought it would be, and more. The facilities were so great I couldn't believe it. All I have seen is my high school, so seeing something so nice was a shock to me.

"I liked it a lot," said Ahmu of his trip to Arizona for the Washington State game. "It was everything I thought it would be, and more. The facilities were so great I couldn't believe it. All I have seen is my high school, so seeing something so nice was a shock to me. The dorms were brand new that they showed me. The team's equipment and just the overall facilities were awesome."

The Arizona coaches have told Ahmu that if he takes care of business over the summer he could possibly start as a true freshman next fall.

With his Arizona visit being so overwhelming, did Ahmu commit or think about committing? "I don't want to commit too early because I don't have anything to compare Arizona too, yet. I need to take my trips and compare all of the schools and then make my decision. I will tell you though that Arizona has the upper hand right now."

The San Diego product has written offers from UA, Washington State, and San Diego State. He knows of three other visits. "I am going to Colorado, I think, for the Oklahoma State game. That hasn't been finalized, though. After that weekend I am supposed to be heading to Washington State. I will go to UCLA for a visit after the season, probably in December. The last visit will be between Washington and USC."

"Coach (USC quarterbacks coach Carl) Smith called me today and left a message. He said he wants to see some senior tape and for me to keep working hard. He said if I just keep doing what I'm doing that paper (offer) will come."

Ahmu is starting at offensive tackle and defensive tackle for 0-3 Serra High. He has 30 tackles and four sacks on defense.

He carries a 3.3 core GPA and scored a 980 on his SAT. As for a major he says, "I was thinking about Radiology but I might want to change that to Nursing or something in the Bio-Medical field."

Serra takes on Mira Mesa, this Friday.
