Is Washington Commit Paulay Asiata Colorado Bound?


Could be huge. Asiata is the #1 prospect out of Hawaii as a 6'5" 285 offensive guard. He and Juda Parker are teammates. From Bob Condotta at the Seattle Times: In what could be a more telling blow, Greg Biggins of ESPN Rise reports that OL Paulay Asiata of Honolulu has decommitted and is now likely to end up at Colorado along with teammate Juda Parker. Here is Biggins' story, and it's an Insider piece so I won't cut and paste. But Biggins quotes Parker as saying that the two want to play in college together and that "it looks good for both of us at Colorado.''' Parker also says that Asiata may have "committed (to UW) too soon, before he was ready'' and that now that he has thought about things more he wants to go to Colorado with Parker. Biggins was in Hawaii last week and said that while there, he also got word from people at Asiata's school that he had decommitted from UW. However, there is also a school of thought that Asiata may just want to wait to make his decision final until Wednesday, when there is a signing day event on the Islands, and that he hasn't ruled out UW. Obvioulsy, a fluid sutiation worth monitoring until signing day. Asiata has been regarded as a pretty significant get for UW, considered maybe the top recruit in Hawaii this year. Here's what I wrote about him last week.
