Demarcus Ayers update

Demarcus Ayers update

The Lancaster (Tx) receiver did not make an official visit to Houston this weekend as scheduled, and may be making a different trip next week. Details inside.

"I didn't get to go to UH," Ayers reported. "They thought I wasn't interested anymore."

So did they cancel?

"I don't know about for good," he responded, "but this weekend they didn't have room."

Scheduled to hit Arizona State next weekend, he noted he is still planning on making the trip, "unless Texas Tech wants me that weekend, then I might swap them."

(Next weekend is when fellow Dallas-Fort Worth area receiver Quincy Adeboyejo is scheduled to visit Tech.)

With Arizona State and Texas Tech officials the next two weekends, Arkansas remains for Ayers Feb. 2, the final weekend before National Signing Day, Feb. 6.

And while Tech and Arkansas have not offered, Ayers is confident his relationship with Tech's Eric Morris and Arkansas' Joel Thomas will lead to two.

After all, Morris was the one who ultimately nabbed the commitment from Ayers while at Washington State, only to lead to Ayers' decommitment with his move to Lubbock to join Kingsbury and Co.

Thomas, a recent addition to the Razorbacks' staff from Washington, has hit the ground running since arriving in Fayetteville and is the most recent to make a push for the highly-recruited athlete.

"Most likely on the visits they'll offer," said Ayers.

When making these trips, what exactly will he be looking for?

"I'm looking for a good education, somewhere where I'll get playing time, and where they'll use me in a variety of ways… I also want a coaching staff that's stable. After this year and all the changes, that's more important than ever."

The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder finished his senior season with videogame-like numbers, accounting for 41 scores and 3,340 yards at quarterback, running back and wideout, also seeing some time in the secondary, thus proving why the nickname "Mr. Do It All" was more than appropriate.
