March 18 is the birthday of Hesperia (Calif.) Sultana four-star wide receiver LaMason Waller’s mother. It also marks the day that he will announce his commitment. 

With a little more than two months until revealing his college destination, Waller knows which programs are in contention for his pledge. He announced a top 10 of Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Louisville, Michigan State, Stanford, Syracuse, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Washington

“I’m looking for a chance to play early and play great football,” Waller told On3. “I want to be in a program that’s building. I don’t want to go somewhere where it’s already done. I want to be a star and be in history for changing the program.”

Waller is excited to visit Louisville and Miami

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound wideout will visit one of his finalists – the Cardinals – on Jan. 27. Meanwhile, Miami will host him on Jan. 20. Even though the Hurricanes were not included in his top 10, they have been recruiting him and he is interested in learning more about the Coral Gables-based program. 

Waller’s visits to Louisville and Miami will mark his first time at both programs. He is looking forward to learning more about both ACC schools. 

“They’re actually really big visits because I like the tradition at Miami and what they’re doing up there,” said Waller, the No. 240 overall prospect and No. 37 wide receiver in the 2025 On300. “At Louisville, I talk to a coach there almost every single day. They’re recruiting me hard.”

One of the reasons Louisville has caught his attention is because of the amount of California high school players who are signing with the Cardinals and succeeding under head coach Jeff Brohm and his staff. He referenced three alumni from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco from the 2023 class currently enrolled there in four-star cornerback Aaron Williams, four-star quarterback Pierce Clarkson and three-star athlete Jahlil McClain.

Meanwhile, the No. 22 player in California is well aware of Miami’s success from the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s that included five national championships. He likes how the Hurricanes’ current staff under head coach Mario Cristobal is trying to get back to that level of success. 

Waller sees Colorado as a ‘great fit’ for him

Colorado was the last school to host Waller on a visit. During a trip to Boulder on Nov. 4 for the Buffaloes’ game against Oregon State, he and his family had a positive experience on campus during year one of head coach Deion Sanders’ tenure.

“That was a really big visit for me because my parents were able to go and have time with the coaches,” Waller said. “I like the atmosphere, I like the way they throw the ball, I pretty much like everything. I like the staff. Colorado’s just a great fit for me.” 

Waller’s main contact at Colorado is wide receivers coach Brett Bartolone. While he is still on Sanders’ staff, multiple coaches have departed following the season, including offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Sean Lewis.

“If anything were to happen, I believe in Prime and his vision,” Waller said. “I see what he’s doing there.”
