SoCal athlete picks up huge ACC offer

Three-star wide receiver Patrick Onwuasor (6-2, 200, 4.5) from Inglewood, Calif., is blazing hot on the recruiting trail. He now has 15 offers after landing a huge one earlier today from one of the ACC's most prestigious programs.
The Miami Hurricanes have joined Arizona, Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Fresno State, Hawai'i, Idaho, Nebraska, New Mexico, New Mexico State, Oregon State, San Diego State, Utah and Washington.
Onwuasor has already taken three of his allotted five visits. He has already been on the campuses of Nebraska, Hawai'i and Arizona.
There is good reason why Onwuasor is creating such heat on the recruiting trail. He has a very tough decision ahead of him just to choose two more schools out of all the quality suitors.
"Patrick will choose between Arizona State, Colorado, Washington and Miami for his last two visits," Inglewood recruiting coordinator Khalid Ali said. "He will think about his visits over the holidays and then he will make up his mind. He probably won't even make his college decision until close to signing day or signing day.
"Patrick is thrill how is recruitment is going, but he knows he has a tough decision ahead," Ali said. "His parents are from Nigeria and they are overwhelmed and appreciative that so many great schools are interested in their son."
Onwuasor did everything for Inglewood this past season except sell popcorn at halftime.
"As a junior if look at Patrick's highlight tape, you would see a player making a bunch of plays on go routes," Ali said. "Fast forward to this season and Patrick is making plays all over the field. Not only on offense and defense, but he excels on special teams, too.
"In one game, Patrick had a 90 yard pick for six, a 90 yard kickoff return for a touchdown and two receiving touchdowns," Ali said. "That was just one game, but he was a consistent playmaker all season long."
On the offensive side of the ball, he accounted for 37 receptions for 745 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging an outstanding 20.1 yards per catch. He also rushed for 110 yards and scored a rushing touchdown while averaging 10.0 yards per carry.
Defensively, he was outstanding, racking up 46 tackles, six interceptions, two pass deflections, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
