Jayme Otomewo loved how the Arizona State coaching staff recruited him and that was one big reason why the Los Angeles Dorsey safety committed on Monday evening.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound three-star prospect said he developed a great relationship with Arizona State assistant coach Chris Ball and that paid off big time in his decision-making process.
"It's very exciting just knowing that is off my shoulders," Otomewo said. "I have the school I'll be attending. I don't have to worry about calling all the coaches. I'm just relieved.

"The coaching staff really stood out and the way they were recruiting me. They've been recruiting me hard, they've been consistent, I talk to them almost every day and I like coach Ball a lot. They're very energetic, I feel I can play there and they have a great fan base."
Colorado, Fresno State, Hawaii, Ohio and San Jose State had also offered Otomewo but he believes he found the right fit at Arizona State.
The next step for the Dorsey standout is to try to convince teammate and close friend Daquawn Brown to play for the Sun Devils, too.
In recent days, Washington and Washington State have emerged as favorites for Brown but Otomewo said he's going to do his best to convince Brown to join him at Arizona State.
"Right now, Washington and Washington State are looking good for him but he also did say ASU is in the mix," Otomewo said. "It's pretty much those three. I'll be trying to push him over here."
Rivals.com rates Otomewo as the No. 54 safety in the 2013 class and the No. 72 prospect in the California state rankings.
