Otomewo's Standouts

Jayme Otomewo

Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey safety Jayme Otomewo talks about the recruiting process and breaks down his favorite schools.

Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey safety Jayme Otomewo currently holds four scholarship offers. He's happy with the way his recruiting process is unfolding.

"The recruiting process is going well," he tells Scout.com. "Just being introduced to it, it was kind of stressful at the start. But once I got my first offer, everything has been going well from then and the process is picking up, schools are starting to notice and everything is going well."

Arizona State, Colorado, Ohio and San Jose State have extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-2, 180-pound athlete.

However, there are others on the radar.

"The schools that are standing out to me are Arizona State, USC and Oregon," Otomewo reveals.

What is it about each of these schools that appeals to the junior?

ASU: "What stands out about Arizona State is their coaches. They have a new coaching staff and the coaches there are very supportive. They came down to my track meets and my practice, and they've come and talked to my coaches. It's a great school. I haven't had a chance to visit Arizona State, but they have a good football program and it's a really good school."

Oregon: "Oregon is a school that is showing me a lot of interest; it's a school that my family and I like, so it's a top school right now. They have a great defense; Oregon's defense and my defense at Dorsey high school, it's the same, so that fits me as a player. I know players at Oregon (De'Anthony Thomas and Cliff Harris) and they tell me good things about it. Oregon is a good school."

USC: "USC came to my school to talk to me two days ago and I got in contact with them today. USC, that's my favorite school, actually. USC has been my childhood favorite school since the Reggie Bush era. What I like most about USC is that it's close to home; I want to stay home and be able to see my family. It's a great school with great academics and a great football team. The defense is good and all the safeties are projected to go to the draft every year. I want to go to the draft and I think USC has the best opportunity for me to do that."

Academically, Otomewo reports a 3.8 cumulative GPA.
