Another new Husky?

There are multiple reports tonight that tight end David Ajamu of Shelton, who had earlier committed to Oregon State, has changed his mind and has instead committed to UW.

Ajamu was offered a scholarship last week by UW and has since decided to switch his pledge.

He told Dawgman.com when he committed to Oregon State he didn’t know if he would get an offer from UW. But he said he had since had a lot of conversations with UW coaches and has decided to switch.

He told RealDawg.com that “I just realized that I needed to do what I had to do. … My family is happy and Washington is my town so I have to represent.”

Mason Kelley of ESPN.com’s HuskyNation also reported that Ajamu got the offer while at the UW-Utah game and began thinking what it would be like to be Austin Seferian-Jenkins’ understudy.

Scout.com rates him a three-star recruit as does Rivals.com and ESPN. He’s variously listed at at being 6-4 or 6-5 and between 230-240 pounds.

UW is listed as having 18 commits, a class rated currently as No. 14 in the nation by Scout.com, and third in the Pac-12.

Here is some of what ESPN.com’s scouting report of Ajamu says:

Ajamu is a tight end prospect with good overall size. He possesses nice height and good bulk and should be able to pack on some more good mass with further physical development. He looks to spend a good deal of time flexed out, but also has experience working from an in-line position which he is better suited for. He presents a nice sized and physical target that can help the move the chains and be a good option in the red-zone. … Ajamu is a tight end with good size and can be physical and possesses some raw tools. Does display some limitations in areas and we don’t see an immediate contributor, but with work could develop and ideally fit as a productive No. 2 TE.
