"I chatted with Coach Graham not only about the program but also about the academics. I also talked to Coach Norvell and Coach Alexander about the offense. I learned a lot about the program on the visit."
The 6-2 185-pound Trent Irwin from William S. Hart High School in Newhall, Calif. has been one of the more coveted 2015 prospects on the West Coast, and according to Scout.com's National Recruiting Analyst, Greg Biggins, for very good reason.
"You won't find a more polished receiver anywhere out west, regardless of class,," Biggins said. "Irwin. He doesn't have game breaking speed, but just gets open and catches everything. He has an advanced feel for the position, understands route running and how to set up a defender and has improved his athleticism and strength every year he has played. He's also incredibly tough and isn't afraid to go over the middle and take a hit and never flinches."
"The (ASU) coaches like my technique, my double moves," Irwin described, "and just my ability to make plays. I really like their scheme and how they play the wide receivers."
"I don't have another visit planned for Arizona State but I think I will visit them again," Irwin said. "I don't have a set date for a decision. I'm just waiting to see how everything pans out. I'm looking for a good program I can see myself playing and one that also has good academics. I'm also looking for coaches who are relatable."
An unexpected visitor accompanied Irwin on his trip, but one he is very familiar with – his high school quarterback and fellow four-star recruit, Brady White, another highly coveted prospect by ASU. White was on his unofficial trip to Arizona yesterday, and made a last minute decision to stop in Tempe on Sunday.
"We visited a few schools together," Irwin commented. "It's cool to do that because we can chat during the visit about what we are seeing. I could see ourselves playing together, but we each have to make sure we find the school that fits us the best."
