Three-star Silvarius Ajawara (6-4, 305, 5.4) from Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Tesoro first burst onto the scene when Tesoro was one of the surprise team's in 2008 and made it to CIF final game, but lost a thriller to Long Beach (Calif.) Poly. Ajawara was a big reason behind his team's success and was considered the best offensive lineman at the school as an underclassman.
That is quite a statement because one of Tesoro's linemen, Evan Finkenberg earned a scholie from ASU.
Ajawara has four offers on the table from Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA and Washington. The talented offensive lineman recently took in UCLA's scrimmage.
"The scrimmage was good," Ajawara said. "It was fun to get out there and watch the team and get ready for the season to get ready next week.
"I didn't get a chance to see any other scrimmages because mainly I have had practice too," Ajawara said. "I haven't been able to go anywhere and visit any other schools so I'm just kind of playing everything by ear right now. I'm just going to practice and hanging out right now."
"I'm getting a little bit closer to making a decision, but I'm still kind of weighing things out," Ajawara said. "I'm waiting just a little bit longer and take my time with things."
"Everybody is still pretty even right now," Ajawara said. "Once the seasons starts up again, we never know, we will see what happens."
"I will be attending UCLA's game against San Diego State on Saturday," Ajawara said. "I'm hoping to be able to get out and watch some other school's as well."
"I really want to get out and see Oregon when they play USC, more than anything else" Ajawara said. "That is going to be a crazy game altogether."
"Hopefully, I will get out to see a U of A game and ASU," Ajawara said. "If I could get up to Washington, I would like to see one of their games, too."
Ajawara has not set up any official visits as of yet. He is hoping to talk to some of the coaches and it is a good bet that he will because starting September 1st colleges are allowed to make phone calls to prospects.
Besides going to games and going through the recruiting process, Ajawara and his Tesoro teammates are gearing up for their opener this Friday, September 4th when they play San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills.
Though Ajawara plays tackle on the high school level, he is being recruited as an offensive guard.
Ajawara earned a spot on the Rivals.com California Preseason Top 100 team for the class of 2101 landing as the Golden State's No. 47 prospect at any position.
