One of the fastest rising safeties in the state of Texas, Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Hightower's Victor Ayewa made up his mind a few days ago. His college choice will take him out of the Lone Star State.
The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Houston-area prospect fell under the radar after he moved to several different schools over the past two years. With a strong season at Hightower that included five interceptions this past year, he was on the map. Of the several offers he picked up, it was one from the Pac-10 he coudn't turn down.
"I committed like four days ago to Washington," Ayewa said. "It was about the oppportunity there. It was everything. The eudctation there, the coaches, and all of that. They said I have a chance to play early and I'm one of the best ones they'll have."
Ayewa took an official visit to Washington on Jan. 5. There he got a chance to meet his recruiting coach, J.D. Williams. With the relationship he has with his recruiter, there isn't any other schools on Ayewa's mind.
"He was a cool guy and he seemed to know a lot about the safety position," Ayewa said. "I'm solid and ready to go for Washington."
Ayewa also had scholarship offers from UAB, Arizona State, Tulane, Baylor, and Louisiana Tech.
