ASU Football: Class of 2014 Local Prospects Summary


The first eight blogs in the series focused on specific Arizona high school stars who can compete with the top talent across the nation. These players have “super star” potential in college. Two weeks ago, ASU received some great news as Tyler Whiley, of Scottsdale Chaparral, verbally committed to his hometown Sun Devils.

The top tier of Arizona Class of 2014 Local Prospects is as follows:

#1 Kyle Allen, QB, Scottsdale Desert Mountain  –  Committed to Texas A&M on 6/3/13
#2 Casey Tucker, OT, Chandler Hamilton
#3 Jalen Brown, WR, Mountain Pointe   –  ASU did not make his final nine schools

Then, there is a second tier of Arizona high school players who will play BCS football. This second tier of high school players would be household names like the players listed above in any other year of Arizona football. It is that good of a football class in Arizona this year.

Trevor Wood, TE, Scottsdale Chaparral  –  Committed to Arizona
Luke Rubenzener, QB, Scottsdale Chaparral  –  Committed to California
Ismael Murphy-Richardson, DE, Goodyear Desert Edge

Arizona is full of Division 1 football talent, and National Signing Day on February 5, 2014, is a long way off. There is a lot of recruiting time left for the Sun Devils get more local commitments, and the verbal commit of Whiley is a strong start for Todd Graham.
