Ajayi brings his lunchpail
"I was all set to go to Sac City, but after I talked to some people and one of the coaches, I felt it was the right place for me," Ajayi told JCFootball.com recently. "At Sac City I was going to have to greyshirt and I didn't want to do that, so I just decided to come here and it's really been a great decision for me."
As a freshman last fall, Ajayi totaled 32 tackles including 12 tackles-for-loss, three interceptions, five passes defensed and blocked a field goal as well.
"I played a lot in the box and I play more of a Rover position," Ajayi said. "That means I have to be in the box, attacking the line of scrimmage, and then sometimes I am over the slot receiver playing corner or even playing outside.
"I can play every position in the secondary. It really just depends on our need."
On the recruiting front, Ajayi saw his first offer come in recently and more could be on the way.
"Menlo just offered, they are a little D-2 school," Ajayi said. "That was my first offer, but Eastern Michigan is really close to offering and Sacramento State is really close to offering me too.
"Washington State, Utah State, San Diego State and Hawaii are all recruiting me, but none of them have let me know they are close to offering."
Ajayi is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2011 football season.
