Kamari Pleasant verbally commits to Arizona State

Safety Kamari Pleasant of Etiwanda High made it a Christmas Day to remember after he announced on Twitter that he verbally committed to play football for the Arizona State Sun Devils.

While many recruits across the country simply announce their commitment with a simple tweet, Pleasant added some flare to his announcement by tweeting out a video with his decision.

“I have a lot of choices on my plate and not many choose this route to take but I want to be great,” Pleasant said in his video before the Arizona State logo flashed across the screen.

The decision to announce his commitment was rather easy to make on the holiday.

“I wanted it to be special for my grandma,” he explained. “She kept asking me where I was going to go. I decided to do it when the family would be all around.”

With offers on the table from programs such as Oregon, UNLV and UTEP, it was ASU that had become involved in Pleasant’s process early on.

“I have a great relationship with the coaches there,” he added. “They are like family (at ASU). They have been talking with me since I was a freshman.”

Here is his announcement:
