    Staff is working their butts off with little to show for it. Definitely behind the 8 ball this year with so many newbies to the region. UCLA is KILLING us, but that was to be expected with Junior hiring a dream team recruiting staff for the region (which is all I asked for from a new coach).

    Its hard to say who ASU will end up with but really that is the case with a lot of schools as commits are flipping their committments at an alarming rate.

    Even schools like ALA, OSU & LSU are getting burned. LSU lost the top rated QB to ND this week and that came out of nowhere. UCLA & UW will clean up in the next couple of weeks leading up to NSD, CAL just lost their lead recruiter to UW and now a couple of their commits are looking around.

    If ASU ends up getting all the Poly kids to come to ASU then they have to feel good about themselves, if they actually keep Goodman & get Foster & Neal they have to feel great about themselves. But those are BIG IFS.

    This years recruiting class was expected to take a hit. When Erickson left, we had a top 25 recruiting class, and now it's down to ~50, according to scout.com. Goodman has re-opened his recruiting search, but with his brother already being here, I think he'll stay committed to ASU. Would be nice to get either Neal or Foster, but it seems unlikely that we'd be able to land both. Graham has been focusing a lot of attention on JC prospects as well, with several 4 star recruits taking recruiting trips here, so hopefully Graham can sell them on the 'new' program.

    Yes. It's at 11:45 I think. It's being streamed on the FSNAZ website.

    ASU QB Michael Eubank as well as walk on running back from Saguaro Danny Clark are both rumored to be in attendance. hopefully that bodes well for ASU.

    Not to mention you are hiring his high school coach.

    With full disclosure obviously being that we are doing the same with Davonte Neal.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I got a chance to watch it. :thumbup:

    He seems like a nice young man. Hopefully Foster's decision will bolster ASU recruiting for those still on the fence.

    Chris Young was a 4-star tweener recruit out of Auburn, WA, two years ago and was committed to Washington. Couldn't get his grades together so he went to JC. Now he's more of a LB than a safety. I've heard he'll be a rover back in the 3-3-5. He's bigger than his listed 220lbs.
