Wasonga begins to address recruiting

Four-star tailback Allan Wasonga continues to be one of the more overlooked four-star prospects in the nation. In part, that is because the 5-foot-8, 196-pounder lives in West Virginia, but also because he has yet to take an official visit.
"The visit I had to Tennessee back in November I had to cancel because of a playoff game," he said. "That was the only visit I had set up yet.
"Right now, I'm not sure what I'm doing. I need to make some calls this week."
Wasonga still holds offers from the likes of Penn State, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Tennessee, West Virginia, Bowling Green, Marshall and Ohio. Is there anyone in mind that'll get a visit?
"I'm not even sure," he said. "I talked to Pittsburgh the other day and I like them. The coaching change doesn't bother me. Pittsburgh's a good program."
Meanwhile, is there anyone he's still holding out hope for?
"I'm still being proactive and waiting on schools," he said. "I wanted to hear from Virginia Tech. I heard from them way earlier when they told me they weren't taking any running backs, but they just had two running backs go to the NFL. I'd like to get in contact with them and see what happens with that. I like their running style; it fits me as a person. I was also there for the Nike Camp and the campus was beautiful."
With visits likely coming in the next few weeks, what is Wasonga looking for?
"I mean, I'm definitely looking for a place with a good family type of environment," he said. "I want somewhere I can fit in and play. I know I can play football at the next level, but I don't want to be messed around with. I definitely want to make the right decision."
Despite battling a hip flexor strain this season, Wasonga still ran for 1,200-yards and 17 touchdowns while earning all-state honors.
"The season was kind of disappointing, we went 6-5 and lost in the first round," he said. "I personally didn't do as well as my junior year. I was kind of injured a bit and that limited me my first two games and I struggled with it most of the season.
"I felt like I did well. I think I bounced back to be a leader."
