Arizona State Recruiting Round-Up

Kimball Niumatalolo returning an INT for a TD

Recent Commits
Kimball Niumatalolo, LB, 6-1/235 (NR): a fast player with a ton of determination; don’t be fooled by his size.
Jake Sheffield, DT, 6-3/275 (NR): gained versatility after two years in Marine Corps, which drew ASU’s attention towards him; at the ripe age of 25, he brings maturity to the table.
Kody Kohl, TE, 6-3/220 (NR): possess a good football mentality plus showed off impressive skills in camp; a brother on the team helped making the decision to commit easier

Trending on the Trail
Kenny Lawler, WR, 6-3/185 (***):  Despite rumors about his soft commitment, Lawler’s father claims ASU is still his No.1.
Darreus Rogers, WR, 6-2/194 (****): despite being a verbal commitment to USC, Rogers said might not be 100% sold on Trojans. ASU and Washington are still in the mix
Jamar Allah, CB, 6-1/180 (**):  an impressive passing tournament drew an offer from ASU and it catapulted them to the top of his list. 

Top Commits for 2012
·         Dejon Allen, OG, 6-3/265 (***): can play on both sides of the ball but prefers OG; needs to add weight to his frame to be an interior lineman.
·         Randall Goforth, WR/CB, 6-0/175 (***): coverage troubles probably means he is better suited for offense; great hands and decent instincts could also make him a good target.
·         Salamo Fiso, OLB, 6-1/215 (***): drew comparisons to Vontaze Burfict by some ASU coaches; use of hands are still a work in progress
·         Milo Jordan, DT, 6-2/265 (NR): a strong run stopper that needs work on the pass rush
