Arizona State added to its 2013 football recruiting class on Tuesday, landing a verbal commitment from high school safety Jayme Otomewo, according to a report from Doug Haller of azcentral.com.
Otomewo, a 6'2 190-pound safety from Los Angeles, chose the Sun Devils over reported offers from Colorado, Fresno State, Hawaii, Ohio and San Jose State. Otomewo is rated as a three-star prospect by both Rivals.com and Scout.com. He attends Dorsey High School, which has produced several Pac-12 players in recent years.
At 6'2, Otomewo possess good size for a safety prospect and, according to Scout.com's Brandon Huffman, Otomewo uses that size to his advantage. Huffman said Otomewo is a physical player with the upside to make an impact at ASU down the road. While he said Otomewo was raw, Huffman said he compared well to former Sun Devil Clint Floyd.
With Otomewo now in the fold, ASU currently has 17 verbal commitments for the 2013 class. While positions could change once the players get into a college strength and conditioning program, the Sun Devils currently have verbal commitments from four defensive backs.
