Trosin's decision could come soon

6-0 185 Folsom (Calif.) wide receiver Tyler Trosin began his official visit circuit in Tempe last weekend and discussed his experience with Devils Digest.

"I visited Arizona State in June and I liked it a lot when I visited then, and I like it even more when I visited this time," said Tyler Trosin. "I liked watching the game, the atmosphere was great. I had a good time. I was hosted by AJ Pickens. We went to an academic presentation, toured the campus, and we toured the facilities.

"This apartment complex we went to (Vista Del Sol) was pretty cool and pretty big."

The game against Oregon obviously featured two wide open offenses which appealed to the wide receiver and he shared his impressions about the ASU offense.

"They run the spread," Trosin said. "I think they passed the ball close to 60 times a game and as a receiver you like when they pass it a lot. That means more of an opportunity to get the ball."

As a junior Trosin, who was offered by Arizona State in the spring, was the area leader with 81 catches for 1,446 yards and 25 touchdowns. He was named the Delta River League's co-offensive player of the year in 2009, also a first team All-Sac-Joaquin Section and All-Metro pick.

"The ASU coaches told me they like how I make big plays," Trosin noted," and that I'm a playmaker, explosive and just a tough football player. Some of my strong skills are that I work hard, I'm tough, and I'm going to give everything I got on every single play.

"I can catch the ball in traffic, I'm not afraid of getting hit, and I think I block pretty well too. As far as things I need to work on, maybe blocking on linebackers because they are a little bigger and I'm a smaller guy."

The bulldogs are 3-1 on the year, and Trosin thus far has eight touchdowns. Seven of those scores are receptions and overall he has caught 19 passes for 369 yards.

"Our only loss was to the no. 3 team in the nation, which is Grant out of Sacramento," Trosin explained, "and we'll probably see them later on in the season, like in the championship so I'm looking forward to that. Other than that we've been doing pretty well. One of my buddies on the team verbally committed to Stanford - Jordan Richards."

Trosin has offers from Oregon State, Washington State, Iowa State and added that Oregon and UCLA have been pursuing him as well.

"I don't have scheduled visits to Oregon State and Washington State yet but I will probably make a date for those visits," Trosin stated. "My favorite school - it is a tie between Arizona State and Oregon State.

"I plan on making a decision within a couple of weeks."

Trosin laid out what factors will ultimately influence his decision on where to commit.

"When I look at a school I think about the community," Trosin stated, "how is it going to fit me, and if I fit in that type of environment. Coaches, I need to see if I can get along with them and how our relationship would be. Are they the type of guys that I can talk to when something's happening. Those kind of things."
