2015 ASU Recruiting Update #5


The first 2015 Sun Devil Recruiting Update, from October, profiled the current verbal commitments to the Arizona State football program and projected how the class could finish out based on the current Sun Devil football roster by class. The second 2015 Sun Devil Recruiting Update examined the success of in-state recruiting for the Sun Devil coaching staff. In the third 2015 Sun Devil Recruiting Update, the national aspect of Arizona State recruiting was analyzed. The fourth 2015 Sun Devil Recruiting Update from December examined early signings for the 2015 class. This fifth 2015 Sun Devil Recruiting Update provides an overview of the 2015 recruiting class as the calendar transitions from 2014 to 2015, and it discusses the different High School All-American games.

Current 2015 Recruiting Class

After the verbal commitments from Paul Lucas and Zach Robertson, there are possibly seven spots to fill in the 2015 recruiting class. Here is how the current 2015 Recruiting Class stands:

Eight different players have at least one four-star ranking at a major recruiting website.

Junior college transfers Epps and Durant have signed their National Letters of Intent and join the program for the spring 2015 semester. High school verbal commits White, Miller, Ralston, and Lea intend on graduating high school this winter and enrolling into Arizona State for the 2015 Spring Semester.

Lucas, a football and track star from Mountain Pointe High School in Phoenix, Arizona joins Bryce Perkins, Cade Cote, and Steve Miller as local Arizona high school stars who verbally intend to join the Arizona State Sun Devil football program. The Sun Devils have not signed four local players since 2011, Mo Latu, Vi Teofilo, Gary Chambers, and Israel Marshall who retired due to injury. Our 2010, 2011, 2012,  2013, and 2014 Recruiting Arizona blogs have in depth details about the success of local Arizona high school football prospects.

High School All-American Games

Of the three major high school All-American Games, the following two should interest Sun Devil fans:

2015 Under Armour All-America Game
Friday January 2, 2015

ASU Verbals: Paul Lucas
ASU Prospects: John Houston, Cordell Broadus

2015 U.S. Army All American Bowl
Saturday January 3, 2015

ASU Verbals: Brady White, Jaason Lewis
ASU Prospects: Porter Gustin, Trent Irwin, Joe Wicker, Rasheem Green, Osa Masina, Stanley Norman

While it appears only several weeks away on the calendar, in the recruiting world, Signing Day, which is February 4, 2015, is a long ways away, and anything can happen.
