West Mesquite HS recruits talk ASU visit

ASU's recruiting efforts in Texas have been well documented and one high school that has been targeted is West Mesquite. ASU already landed a commitment from defensive lineman Dimarya Mixon, it received a pledge today from cornerback William Earley and is courting safety Kameron Miles. All three visited Tempe over the weekend and we talked to all three to get their thoughts on their experience.

The 6-2 190-pound William Earley said that before he landed in Tempe he knew that if offered a scholarship on his Arizona State visit he would commit. Sure enough, that scenario played out on Sunday.

"I just liked everything on the visit," Earley said. "The coaches, the players, the environment. All the players I talked to said how much they like it here and how they like the scheme they are running. I liked watching the defense play (in ASU's 37-7 win over Utah) and see how fast and physical they were. They blitz a lot and their corners press a lot.

"Coaches told me that they like my size and speed, and that I can make plays on the field."

The three-star corner reported offers from Colorado, New Mexico, Ole Miss and TCU among others, and added that while he does consider his Sun Devil pledge "solid" he isn't ruling out future visits to the Buffaloes and the Lobos.

Dimarya Mixon committed to the Sun Devils back in May sight unseen. This past weekend marked the second time the defensive lineman has visited Tempe, and while the experience was enjoyable it wasn't unexpected either.

"I was really excited seeing the fans and the players," Mixon stated. "I liked how (Defensive Coordinator) Coach Randolph was coaching the defensive line and blitzing."

"I got to talk to Will Sutton. That is my dude right there. He told me how much he likes the school and the team."

The 6-3 265-pound Mixon is listed as a soft verbal since he did officially visit Oklahoma on September 8th, and he plans to visit West Virginia next weekend. Missouri is another program that could get a future official visit. Nonetheless, his sentiments towards the original school of choice haven't changed.

"This visit showed me what a great place it is," Mixon said of ASU. "I expected Will to commit and the visit helped out a lot with Kameron. It's always cool to play with your teammates."

Four-star safety prospect Kameron Miles, who committed to Tennessee in May, stated that his favorite part of his official visit was being at ASU's game and naturally witnessing a contest dominated by the Sun Devil defense.

"I really like the scheme on defense," said the 6-2 212-pound Miles, "and the way they attack."

Otherwise Miles was impressed with the overall environment of ASU saying: "It's like a vacation town."

So with two of his teammates in the fold for the Sun Devils, does the safety plan on decommitting from the Volunteers?

"I'm a soft commit," Miles said of his Tennessee pledge. "Arizona State has made a strong impression on me. It's a possibility that I would commit to them. Dimarya and Will committing there plays a minor factor, but that is something I will think about. (ASU) Coaches said that I could play here as a true freshman.

"I'm planning to visit UCLA sometime. I don't have any other visits planned."
