2016 priority target overview: Spur

In junior Laiu Moeakiola, Arizona State has a solid starter at Spur who is a junior, but the depth behind him is unproven and it remains an important position in recruiting moving forward.

Arizona State signed Marcus Ball in 2014, and he will play Spur moving forward for the program but there is a need for more athletes who can handle the demands of one of the most difficult positions in the Sun Devil scheme.

Here's our look at the spur prospects who have offers from Arizona State.

As the top-ranked overall prospect in Oklahoma, it is not a surprise that some of the biggest schools in the country are after Calvin Bundage. The 6-foot-3 190-pounder is one the best Spur prospects we have seen. His brother is a starting offensive linemen for Arizona, which probably does not bode well for Arizona State's chances of a commitment. Arizona, Arkansas, Michigan, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCU are some of the other programs who have offered.

Jordan Carmouche, a three-star prospect according to Scout.com, was credited with 57 tackles, six tackles for loss, two sacks an interception, a fumble recovery and four pass breakups in 14 games last year. The Manvel, Texas, native has offers from all the major Texas schools save Texas A&M and seems likely headed to Big-12 or SEC at this time. He has indicated he would like to make a commitment this summer.

Arizona State seems to be on the outside looking in with Michael Divinity at this time. His top-five reportedly consists of includes LSU, Miami, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas A&M. Mike Norvell is recruiting the Louisiana based recruit. He could potentially play any of the linebacker spots for ASU but Spur is the position that think this high level prospect projects best to in college.

Caleb Kelly is another elite prospect claiming an ASU offer. We view the Fresno (Calif.) Clovis West recruit as a borderline five-star type prospect who could play either Spur or WILL in the Sun Devil defense. Arizona State did not make his recent Top-10, which consisted of Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU, UCLA and Washington, UCLA.

Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei linebacker Curtis Robinson reminds of current ASU spur Marcus Ball. The 6-foot-3 and 205 pound prospect’s mother is a professor at UCLA, which you would think would give the Bruins the upper hand in his recruitment but he said that he is open to all schools. He has not talked much about the Sun Devils in interviews thus far. He has over 20 offers including programs such as Notre Dame, Ohio State and USC.

With an offer from Oregon, Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic linebacker Lamar Winston’s recruitment might already be trending toward being over. ASU has a connection though, as current Sun Devil defensive lineman Connor Humphreys came from Central Catholic. Cal, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, Washington and Washington State are the other Pac-12 programs who have reportedly offered. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder is a good fit for the spur position and has posses a NFL type prospect. ceiling
