Coaches didn't find out about Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Hightower safety Victor Ayewa since he's moved around more than most prospects between his sophomore year and now.
Now, the 6-foot-2, 205-pounder finished a year at Hightower with five interceptions and has colleges offering scholarships at a fast pace just in the past 30 days. Ayewa says he's not surprised most schools didn't know about him since he's been at numerous high schools since he was a freshman.
"I moved around from school to school because of financial reasons," Ayewa said. "I was at Fort Bend Austin as a junior and my sophomore year I was at Westbury. No one really knew about me until they got to see my film from my senior year.
"I'm the hardest hitting safety out there."
Ayewa says that attention from the media wasn't the only interest that was lacking. College coaches didn't know about him until late but now that they do, they're not hesitating on offering.
"One coach told me that I was the best looking safety not only Rivals.com," Ayewa said.
The talented defender has already taken several official visits. So far he's picked up scholarship offers from UAB, Arizona State, Tulane, Washington, Louisiana Tech, and Baylor.
Ayewa has already visited Washington (Jan. 5), UAB this past weekend (Jan. 19), and will visit Baylor officially this weekend.
"Washington was my favorite trip," Ayewa said. "I've just got a bond with those coaches. I like how they treated me up there."
The Houston-area star isn't concerned about distance from home and says he just wants the "best opportunity to play." Ayewa says that his mother just wants him to go to a good academic school.
So when does this sleeper plan to make a decision?
"I'm going to do it before Signing Day," he said. "I know that."
