ASU Football adds two commits to 2014 class
Except for National Signing Day, it is rare when a program adds two commits on the same day during the recruiting cycle, but Todd Graham’s ASU Sun Devils did exactly that on Sunday.
Two soon-to-be high school seniors, offensive lineman Alex Anderson and receiver Nick Alexander, both committed to ASU Sunday. Anderson and Alexander become the sixth and seventh commits in the 2014 recruiting class.
The first offensive lineman to commit to the Sun Devils in this class, Anderson comes from O. Perry Walker School in New Orleans. Despite having offers from a lot of quality schools, Anderson is unranked on Rivals, but is a three-star on Scout and is ranked as the 23rd best player at his position there.
Like Anderson, Alexander has a solid offer list, highlighted by offers from Oklahoma, Illinois and Washington. From Lancaster High School in Texas, the receiver is a three-star commit on both Rivals and Scout. Alexander has good size, standing at 6’3 and coming in at 185 pounds.
We are still more than six months away from National Signing Day, but Graham and his staff has done a really good job of grabbing kids throughout the country. With both Anderson and Alexander now in the fold, seven of ASU’s commits come from five different states.
If this program wants to have consistent success and become a power in the Pac-12, they are going to have to recruit nationwide and not be content with just taking local kids. Hats off to Graham and his staff for realizing that and attacking two big areas of need.
