Two more defensive weapons were added to Graham’s 2014 recruiting class. (@TheSunDevils, Twitter)
The month of August continues to be kind to Todd Graham and his ASU Football program on the recruiting trail. Two high school seniors announced their intentions to play at the Tempe campus for the next four years on Saturday.
Armand Perry, a defensive back out of Las Vegas, and Connor Humphreys, a defensive lineman out of Oregon, both committed to the Sun Devils within hours of one another yesterday. The two youngsters become the fifth and sixth players respectively to pledge to ASU this month.
Perry will be a senior at Bishop Gorman High School, which has been known for years to have a powerhouse basketball program. Already at 6-foot and weighing in at 175 pounds, Perry has good size for a cornerback. A three-star player on both Rivals and Scout, Perry had offers from four other schools (California, Nevada, New Mexico St., UNLV) besides ASU.
Humphreys comes from Central Catholic High School in Oregon, a state where more and more blue chippers are coming from in recent years. Heading into his final year in high school, he already stands at 6-foot-4 and comes in at over 260 pounds.
Unlike Perry, Rivals and Scout don’t agree on Humphreys ranking. Rivals lists him as a four-star player and the 78th best player nationally while Scout just has him as a three-star guy. Before committing, Humphreys had a pretty impressive offer list, with offers from schools like Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, USC and UCLA.
It is still early on, but this is shaping up to be a very good recruiting class for the Sun Devils. Graham and his staff are doing a great job of adding athletes on both sides of the football who will end up helping this program for years to come.
