2024 LB Kyngstonn Viliamu-Asa Knows He's A Priority For Notre Dame

May 9, 2023

After receiving several scholarship offers from top programs across the country, Kyngstonn Viliamu-Asa‍ has narrowed his options down to three: Notre Dame, Ohio State, and USC.

Notre Dame linebackers coach Al Golden was at St. John Bosco High School in California recently to check in on the 2024 California linebacker.

In-person contact has to be limited at this point, but Golden and Viliamu-Asa have kept in steady contact since Viliamu-Asa’s recent trip to South Bend with Golden “reemphasizing how much he wants me to be at Notre Dame."

Viliamu-Asa was thankful that Golden returned the visit with one of his own to the West Coast.

"It means a lot, shows the interest for them to come all the way out to California and it was definitely noted," Viliamu-Asa told Irish Sports Daily.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has a great deal of respect for all three programs, saying each one checks all the boxes for him as far as family, education, and life after football.

Now, he needs to decide between the three programs.

"Just keeping in touch with all three and taking my officials in June and then sitting down with my family again, talk about it and just praying about it, praying that God will lead me to make the right decision," he said.

He’ll start the month of June with an official to USC before heading to South Bend June 16th for an official and wrapping it up with an official to Columbus a week later.

He left South Bend earlier this spring raving about the opportunities Notre Dame presents both on and off the field as well as his strong relationships with the members of the Irish coaching staff.

Viliamu-Asa's relationship with Ohio State dates back to the beginning of his recruitment process, which is why the Buckeyes hold a special place in his heart.

"The familiarity I have with them,” he said of the Buckeyes. “Being on campus, there is a good feeling to it. It's a good pipeline from Bosco to Ohio State and it's just a good feeling over there. Nothing but love and respect for Coach (Ryan) Day and his staff and Coach (James) Laurinaitis."

USC's proximity to his home is a major factor in their appeal to Viliamu-Asa.

"Just to be able to build my legacy at home and stay home with my family. Their business school is also really good."

Viliamu-Asa expects to make a decision shortly after his officials.

"I think it'll be a big relief off my back to know it is set, and I'll be able to just focus on my senior season."
