Hunter Kampmoyer Pledges to ASU

2016 tight end Hunter Kampmoyer visited Tempe for the first time last weekend and suffice to say that he decided not to delay the inevitable. The Bishop (Calif.) standout called the ASU coaches on Thursday evening announcing his commitment, the first one for the Sun Devils in the 2016 class.

“When I visited them for Junior Day,” Kampmoyer recalled, “I just loved everything about the university, everything that they are offering and everything that they have. They have great coaches and I’m just blessed to be coached by those people. I’m really looking forward to it. I loved talking to Coach Graham about his philosophy. He was very straight forward with me and it was amazing talking to him. I loved the facilities and the weight room. It’s a great beautiful campus and it just had a great feel.

“I called Coach Chip Long tonight with the news and he was fired up.”

Kampmoyer added that he didn’t necessarily plan to commit this early in the process, but his exposure to the program during the Junior Day event prompted him to make today’s decision.

In an 11 games as a junior for Bishop High School the 6-4 240 lbs. Hunter Kampmoyer collected 123 tackles (76 solo), 21 tackled for loss, 13 sacks, seven forced fumbles and six pass deflections from his defensive end spot. On offense he posted 21 receptions for 450 yards and five touchdowns, as well as rushing for two more scores.

Kampmoyer reported a 40-time of 4.68 seconds, and weight room marks of 285 lbs. benching and cleaning and 415 lbs. squatting.

Arizona State has been recruiting me since November of my junior year,” Kampmoyer remarked. “They got a hold of film, loved it and called me right away with an offer. Coach Long said I had great drive and great leadership skills, he liked my speed, athleticism and strength…everything that they look for in a tight end in their system.

“I know that I need to work on breaking tackles and my receiving. I love Arizona State’s tempo and no-huddle and just their intensity on the field. Coach Long explained to me how they use their tight ends a lot of different ways and look only for the best players to play there.”

Kampmoyer was also offered by Utah State and reported that schools such as Arizona, Boise State, Colorado State, USC, Oregon State, and Washington have all been pursuing him. Prior to his commitment the tight end was planning to visit Oregon State, Utah State and Washington.
