The one and only tight end commit in Washington Class of 2013, David Ajamu of Shelton High School in Shelton, Washington, has sent in his letter of intent, meaning that he will be sticking to the verbal commitment he gave the Huskies back in November of 2012.
Ajamu is listed at anywhere from 6’4” to 6’6” and from 231 pounds to 245 pounds depending on the source, but no matter what, it is clear that he is an athletic tight end capable of factoring heavily into the passing game.
A consensus three-star recruit, I am honestly a little surprised at his lack of offers. He was committed to Oregon State for quite some time until Washington gave him a scholarship offer, at which point he flipped over to the Huskies. Besides those two, Nevada is the only other major conference program listed as having offered him.
Despite a lack of interest from other schools, I was happy to see Washington pick up a commitment from Ajamu, as star tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins could be leaving the program for the NFL after his junior season next year, and so the more talented players on the roster at the tight end position the better, as someone will have to step up and take his place.
