The Todd Graham era of Sun Devil football has already shown recruiting success by getting some early verbal commitments, but those commits are all out of state. Coach Graham has repeatedly mentioned that the Sun Devil football program must be able to keep local high school prospects home for college. These local Arizona high school prospects in the class of 2014 are who Graham and recruiting coordinator Chip Long would love to see in the maroon and gold. Over the next few weeks, let’s take a look at local high school football prospects who Arizona State is targeting in its next recruiting class.
#1 Kyle Allen, QB, Scottsdale Desert Mountain
Without a quarterback in its first two recruiting classes, the Sun Devils desperately need a top signal-caller to enter its program in 2014. Locally, the top quarterback in the state of Arizona is also considered one of the top quarterbacks in the nation. Kyle Allen, a 6’3” 195 lbs quarterback out of Scottsdale, has a big arm, such that he makes all the throws with tremendous accuracy. The Kyle Allen list of accolades includes the following:
- Scout.com 5 star, #1 overall rated QB
- Rivals.com 4 star, #4 overall pro-style QB
- ESPN.com 4 star, ESPN150 Member
- 247sports.com 4 star
- Selected today to the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl
- Earned only invite to the Elite 11 Nation event at the Elite II Chicago Regional
Currently, Kyle Allen has reported offers from Arizona State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, UCLA, Wisconsin, Boise State, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, California, Texas A&M, Oregon State, and many more major colleges.
ASU Offensive Coordinator Mike Norvell is doing everything he can to recruit Allen to stay home and commit to the Sun Devils, and ASU can make a big statement by securing Kyle Allen’s commitment, a crown jewel of the class of 2014, this summer.
