Modster wants to visit Sun Devils

Four-star Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Tesoro High School quarterback Devon Modster has seen his recruitment pick up steam in recent months with Pac-12 and other scholarship offers starting to billow up.

Arizona State is among the schools vying for Modster's attention during the push for pecking order and the nation's No. 235 overall prospect and No. 4 quarterback in the West is reciprocating the interest.

"I'm trying to go visit there in the next couple months or so actually," Modster. said. "Coach (Mike) Norvell has been talking to me a lot more recently. At first when I had a couple offers it seemed like it wasn't as much but lately he's been recruiting me a lot more. I think he's a good coach. He seems like he knows what he's doing and they've been pretty successful the last couple years."

Monster said he's taken the time to familiarize himself with ASU's offense and come away believing it's seemingly a good fit for his dual-threat capability, especially since the Sun Devils aren't extremely run-heavy with the position.

"I think they have a good offense to be in," Modster said. "It didn't seem like their quarterback has to run, but he's mobile and that's a good thing because I think that's what I can give them a lot. I'm not trying to run the ball 20 times a game or something and be tired late in the season because my body is worn down."

Recently Modster had been playing a lot on the camp and 7-on-7 circuit including the huge Pylon event in Las Vegas last weekend and he's got Elite-11 camp this coming weekend.

"The first two games at Pylon we started off slow because we hadn't been practicing in a while and then we picked it up and started doing better but we lost in like the third round to Elite Athlete," he said. "We just played bad that game. I thought I could have done a lot better. It was like reading the defense, taking what the defense gives me, not always trying to make the spectacular throw. Usually I take what the defense gives me but I think I can improve on my drops a lot more."

Before making a college decision, Modster said he's going to really be diligent about seeing as many schools as he can among those who have offered a scholarship, and wants to that started as soon as possible.

"I"m going to go to Arizona, Arizona State, I'm going to go to Cal because they're still considering another quarterback," he said. "And then I'm going to go to Boise State, Colorado State, Washington State and UCLA this weekend I think and whoever else offers me. I like the Pac-12 but Boise State and Colorado State are just as good schools I think, just not as big."

"I haven't talked to my coach or parents about it yet but we will soon because I want to figure it out more."
