ScoutTV presents junior highlights of Silver Spring (Md.) James Hubert Blake running back Kwabena…
Asante Will Spend the Summer Camping
Kwabena Asante is coming off a very productive junior season in which he ran for over 1400 yards. He is a regular in the gym working out to improve his strength. He also runs track to improve his speed. Even with the on field results and off field effort, he is still waiting for his first offer. "I don't have my first offer just yet. Schools have started to visit me and show more interest," said Asante. "Elon, Towson and Temple have been to my school recently. They are recruiting me the hardest right now. Even though some schools recruiting me are not D-IA (FBS) schools it doesn't matter to me. I know there are a lot of great schools out there and I just need to find the one for me. The schools have to want me first." Each school is recruiting Asante as a running back. Although Asante is very humble and appreciative of the attention he is getting he did mention a few other schools he would like to hear more from. "It would be nice to hear more from Virginia, Rutgers, Villanova and Wake Forest," said Asante. "I plan on taking many visits this summer. I know I need to do the school camps to try and impress the coaches." Asante plans on attending camps at Virginia, Elon, Syracuse, Towson, Temple, Wake Forest, Villanova, Rutgers, Old Dominion and Toledo. "Hopefully by the end of summer, if not sooner, I will have some offers." Asante is willing to put in the time and is open to any opportunity at any level. He will evaluate each school by the factors most important to him. "I am looking for the best education first and foremost," said Asante. "I want to have coaches that I can learn from and develop as a player and as a person. I know it will take time to learn the system from coaches so I want to have a good relationship with them. I am different from a lot of players in that I don't need to play right away. I need to earn my time so I am in no rush. Playing time as a freshman is not a factor for me." Asante reports a 2.8 GPA and is waiting for his SAT score.
