Mixon takes in ASU visit

To date, Dimarya Mixon was the only 2013 ASU pledge that hadn't set foot in Tempe yet. That all changed this weekend when the West Mesquite (Tex.) defensive lineman ventured for the first to the school he committed to, learning more about the Sun Devil program and being impressed in the process.

"I loved my visit!" Mixon exclaimed. "Ever I since I got there I was very excited. They took me around the campus, the stadium, the field house (indoor practice facility) and everything was just amazing. The campus was so big that when we started to tour it I didn't know when it was going to end. Some of the dorms there are so big they are like apartments.

"I really like the stadium and how it sits between two mountains. Coach Graham told me that they are going to renovate the stadium so it's going to look very nice. I can't wait to get there. I love the uniforms and I think I took pictures in all of them."

Aside from checking out the school and its athletic facilities, the 6-3 265 Dimarya Mixon also participated in Arizona State's Maroon and Gold camp which had close to 200 prospects and was held earlier today.

"Being my first time coming down here I was really able to bond with (defensive line) coach Randolph," Mixon commented. "It was great being coached by him and I really liked it. He said that he likes my speed and how I rush the quarterback, and that I will have to work more on my technique when I get there.

"I think I did well today in camp, showing that I can rush the quarterback. I wasn't trying to put on a show or anything like that. I was just out there being low key and working hard."

In 2011 Mixon collected 35 total tackles for 5-6 Wranglers and had one fumble recovery. He was voted 1st team all-district following his junior season. He has offers from Oklahoma, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas State, Ole Miss, Purdue, Syracuse, and Washington State. Additionally, LSU has been showing strong interest in recent weeks.

"I think that I could take some official visits later this year," Mixon said. "I do plan to visit ASU for the Utah game (Sept. 22nd). "But as of right now I'm staying where I am. I really do like it here. This visit showed me I made the right decision."
