Asafo-Adjei visits local school
West Chester (Ohio) Lakota West offensive lineman George Asafo-Adjei did not have to travel far for his most recent recruiting visit, making the short drive to Cincinnati this past weekend.
"That was the first time I have ever went to a practice, so that was kind of different," Asafo-Adjei said. "Most of the things that UC was doing I am doing, so it showed me I was going in the right step and now I know what I really need to work on during the season."
Cincinnati is one of nine schools that have offered the 6-foot-4, 295-pound Asafo-Adjei, and their proximity to home and recent experiences on campus have the Bearcats in a good position in this recruitment.
"They are really high up on my list," Asafo-Adjei said. "I want to stay pretty close so that my family can watch my games no problem."
Of the nine schools that have offered, four have made strong, early impressions on Asafo-Adjei.
"I like Illinois, UC, Kentucky and I like West Virginia. I've visited all those schools," he said. "It seems like everywhere I go I really like the campuses, so I have been trying to look at a few things that are a little more [unique], like academics and the campus lifestyle."
The school Asafo-Adjei saw immediately prior to Cincinnati was West Virginia, and that trip raised his impression of the Mountaineers.
"That was my first time being there and it wasn't what I expected… it was better than I expected," he said. "A lot of people were telling me it was a pretty dull place, but when I went there it was nice and the players were really cool."
Asafo-Adjei is planning to make his next visit to Louisville either this week or next week. The Cardinals have not yet offered, but are showing strong interest.
