Means to visit ASU

Arizona State has been recruiting Solomon Means for a just a few weeks, but that hasn't affected the Butte (Calif.) College's cornerback's enthusiasm about being pursued by the Sun Devils. Means will be visiting Tempe this weekend and talked to Devils Digest about his recruitment process with ASU.

The 6-1 175-pound Solomon Means was a qualifier out of high school and attended Weber State after graduation. Due to family reasons he was forced to move back home and suited up for Butte College for the 2012 season.

In that campaign Means notched 38 tackles, one interception and a team-leading 12 passes defended.

"Because I wasn't a mid-year guy, a lot of schools have just lately contacted me," Means said. "I visited Idaho and also Houston where I'm committed to. But I'm a soft verbal and if I like Arizona State on the visit I will commit to them right away so I have a chance to play at a BCS conference.

"I like that they are a big school on the West Coast and in the Pac-12. I talked to Rashad Ross who used to play at Butte and he told me about the atmosphere of the team and how respectful the coaches are and how much they help you."

The cornerback, who reported a 40-time of 4.53 seconds, stated that the Arizona State coaches like his size and ability to cover.

"I play well in man coverage and really overall in any coverage," Means stated. "Getting stronger is something I need to work on. Any where you go you have to work on your skills and grind.

"I like how Arizona State is spread out with wildly different defenses. With all the spread offenses in the Pac-12 they run a lot of nickel and dime coverages and I'm looking forward to that."

In terms of eligibility Means will have three years to play three.
