Intriguing Ghania athlete Collins Acheampong has just received a football scholarship from the University of Washington.

Collins Acheampong has played exactly nine games of organized football at any level.

Two years ago.

However, the lack of gridiron experience for this 6-foot-8, 230-pound athlete from Fairmont Preparatory Academy in Anaheim, California, has not scared off any college recruiters.

Certainly not those from the University of Washington.

It has only made them all that more intrigued about this teenager from Ghana in West Africa.

On Monday, Acheampong received a football scholarship offer from Kalen DeBoer's Husky staff, giving him six altogether. Others drawn to the big kid from halfway around the world are UCLA, Utah, Colorado, San Jose State and San Diego State.

Acheampong never played any football or basketball until three years ago. Read more.
