This past weekend three star recruit DeMarcus Ayers took his official visit to WSU and was impressed. “What a night in pullman washington >>>>>>>>>,” Ayers said on his twitter. Many questions were circulating whether Ayers would back out on Washington State with all the attention he has been receiving, especially picking up an offer from West Virginia, a top-10 football school. This attention Ayers has been receiving is because of the dominant player he has been for his high school football team (Lancaster). Ayers has lead his team a 6-0 record and a number 2 ranking in the state of Texas for 4A so far this season. Watching the Cougars get dominated by California on Saturday, Ayers still sounds committed to sticking with Crimson and Gray!
Ayers said on our radio show (KUGR Presents Wild Fire) that he loved the atmosphere here in Pullman, the college town, and seeing his future teammates play. Especially when you have guys like Marquess Wilson, Gabe Marks, and Isaiah Meyers showing you around campus. Ayers said he had a great time with those guys, seeing the dorms, and the rest of the campus. Being there officially on campus, at a WSU football game, really opened the eyes of Ayers and made him feel better about his choice. What I like about Ayers is his view of the future of where this football program is heading and not judging how the team is currently. “We’re going to turn this program around,” said Ayers on our radio show.
Joining Ayers on this visit was his teammate from Lancaster High School, Daeshon Hall who is a four star defensive end. Hall has already given a verbal commitment to the University of Washington, but there is a possibility of him backing out on UW. “Pullman was fun,” said Hall on twitter. We will find out soon whether these two teammates (Ayers and Hall) will reunite in Pullman or become friendly rivals on the field. Right now we know DeMarcus Ayers is staying with WSU and is ready to change the perception of WSU football.
