Jonesboro's Chuks Ota commits to Arkansas State

JONESBORO (KAIT) - Bryan Harsin got a commitment Tuesday from his own backyard.

Jonesboro High defensive tackle Chuks Ota tweeted "Just committed to Arkansas State! #howlyes #brickbybrick". Ota also considered Arkansas, Auburn, Duke, Memphis, Ole Miss, and UAB.

He made plenty of plays in the trenches in 2012 as the Golden Hurricane reached the 6A state semifinals. Expect the senior to make even more in the 2013 season as JHS makes another run to War Memorial.

If Ota puts pen to paper in February, he would become the 2nd JHS standout in the last 3 years to sign with ASU. Luke Ferguson is battling for a starting spot in special teams this season.
