Four-star corner enjoys visit to ASU

As a junior at Pasadena (Calif.) Muir High School, Kevon Seymour played multiple positions on both sides of the ball. However, as a 2012 recruiting prospect he is known as one of the most coveted cornerbacks on the West Coast. A week ago, Seymour attended ASU's Junior Day and shared his impressions with Devils Digest.

"I had a good time and it was fun out there," said the 6-0 170 Kevon Seymour. "I talked twice with coach Erickson one-on-one and that was really good. I got to talk to coach Broussard who is recruiting me and coach Burns who is the cornerbacks coach. I really loved the stadium, the weight room and all the facilities and enjoyed watching the scrimmage."

Seymour played receiver, running back, quarterback and corner for the Mustangs scoring seven touchdowns and posting 47 tackles, and he believes that his versatility is serving him well at corner.

"Playing on offense I do a good job of reading the plays," Seymour said of his cornerback skills. "I have good feet and I am quick (reported a 40-time of 4.5). Coaches say that I can play right away as a freshman but I feel I still need to improve on everything about my game."

The Sun Devils offered Seymour a month ago and join Pac-12 foes Arizona, Colorado, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington as the cornerback's suitors, Seymour also reported offers from Florida and Nebraska.

"Recruiting is getting a little crazy but I try to enjoy it," Seymour commented. "I'm considering everybody right now and I don't have a favorite. I do want to major in Psychology and I want to go to a school that has a good program for that. Obviously, I'm looking for a place where I can fit in with the coaches and players, and a school that has a good environment and good weather."

When pursuing such a highly regarded prospect every bit of an inside track helps and ASU just might have that in its arsenal due to the fact that Seymour's former teammate and good friend, Karl Holmes, signed as part of the Sun Devils' 2011 recruiting class and will join ASU in the summer.

"He's been talking to me everyday about coming to Arizona State," Seymour admitted. "We have known each other since forever, like eight years old. I guess if I went to there (to ASU) it would kind of be because of Karl. I have another friend who isn't on the team but goes to ASU so that helps too."

Seymour plans to attend Washington's spring game, as well as Oregon State's and added that he could also go to Oregon's camp in June.

"I might go down there to Arizona State with Karl and a couple of my teammates during our spring break," Seymour remarked.

The cornerback indicated that he doesn't plan to make any decision prior to his senior season and will take a few official visits before making his decision.
