Commitment watch: Future Sun Devils in action

Here's a look at how Arizona State's 2016 commits performed in their respective games last week.

Dillion Sterling-Cole

Arizona State quarterback commit Dillon Sterling-Cole's team made national headlines this week.

Sterling-Cole, a four-star quarterback, plays for Westfield High School in Houston, Texas.

Westfield traveled to take on Spring High School Friday Oct. 2. According to the Houston Chronicle, Westfield had a 36-25 lead with 6:18 remaining in the game when a fight broke out between the two teams and included Sterling-Cole's teammate and ASU wide receiver target Tyrie Cleveland, who visited ASU with Sterling-Cole a weekend earlier.

Tensions were high after two consecutive personal foul calls on Spring. Both teams’ players left the sideline and punches were thrown. The Chronicle reported that Spring Athletic Director Willie Amendola called the game early.

Therefore, Westfield won the game 36-25 with 6:18 remaining in the fourth quarter. No individual statistics were reported.

Marshal Nathe

After a disappointing loss the previous week, Marshal Nathe and the Centennial High School offensive line wanted to make a statement Friday Oct. 2.

Nathe, a three-star offensive guard, is an offensive lineman commit for Arizona State. His Centennial team lost to Hamilton High School 34-27 on Sept. 24.

“We just didn’t come up ready to play,” Nathe said. “We made a lot of mistakes…We got worked over a lot more than we should. I know there were a couple plays where I was tossed on my butt which normally doesn’t happen.”

It appeared Centennial took out its frustrations on a 0-6 Boulder Creek team and won the game 44-0 according to MaxPreps.com.

Offensive linemen do not record individual statistics. Based on the performance of the Centennial offense as a whole, it appeared the offensive line found its stride again.

Centennial rushed for 211 yards and four touchdowns. Senior quarterback Isaac Steele also threw two touchdowns.

But most importantly for the offensive line, Boulder Creek had only one tackle for loss and one sack. Nathe said he and his fellow offensive linemen take pride protecting their quarterback.

“We’re protectors, especially of Isaac,” Nathe said. “When he gets hit, we actually take it very personally. It extremely bothers us when he gets rocked or someone even touches him in general.”

Freddie Holly

ASU running back commit Freddie Holly rushed for over 100 yards in a loss Friday Oct. 2.

Holly plays for Norte Vista High School in Riverside Calif., and his team lost 35-21 to Summit High School according to MaxPreps.com.

Holly, a three-star running back, rushed for 108 yards on 30 carries and scored one rushing touchdown.

Tre Turner

ASU running back commit Tre Turner helped his team achieve an overtime win.

Turner, a three-star running back, plays for Holy Cross High School in New Orleans, La.

Friday Oct. 2, Holy Cross defeated Jesuit High School 28-21 according to MaxPreps.com. Turner rushed for 55 yards on 18 carries and caught two passes for 21 yards in the victory.

Jared Bubak

ASU tight end commit Jared Bubak plays quarterback for Lincoln Christian High School in Lincoln, Neb.

Lincoln Christian lost its fifth game of the season Friday Oct. 2 at the hands of Milford/Dorchester High School 51-20 according to MaxPreps.com.

There were no individual statistics reported on the performance of Bubak, a three-star tight end prospect.

Jeremy Smith

Jeremy Smith is another ASU commit who lines up at quarterback in high school but projects elsewhere in college.

Smith, a three-star wide receiver prospect from Fort Bend Marshall High School in Missouri City, Tex., plays quarterback for his high school.

Fort Bend Marshall lost a close game to Texas City High School 28-21 Friday Oct. 2 according to MaxPreps.com. No individual statistics were reported about Smith’s performance at quarterback.

Kyle Williams

ASU wide receiver commit Kyle Williams rushed for over 100 yards in the fourth quarter to help his team achieve a close victory.  

According to the Press-Enterprise, Williams played both quarterback and wide receiver in Vista Murrieta High School’s 36-34 victory over St. Augustine High School on Oct. 2.

Williams, a three-star wide receiver prospect, switched to quarterback in the fourth quarter. He rushed for 106 yards and a touchdown to help his team win.

Cohl Cabral

ASU offensive lineman commit Cohl Cabral helped his team earn another win Friday Oct. 2.

The 6-foot-4, 255 pound, three-star offensive line prospect plays for Los Osos High School in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.

Los Osos scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to achieve the comeback victory over Silverado 23-20 according to MaxPreps.com.

Cabral recorded two tackles in the win.

Christian Hill

Bye Week.

J’Marcus Rhodes

ASU junior college cornerback commit J'Marcus Rhodes and the Kilgore College football team needed a win.

Kilgore College secured its first conference win Saturday Oct. 3 after defeating Northeastern Oklahoma A&M 21-14 according to the Kilgore College football team website.

No individual statistics were reported on Rhodes, a three-star cornerback from Kilgore, Texas. But, the Kilgore defense forced the Northeastern Oklahoma A&M offense to turn the ball over on downs with 1:53 left in the game to secure the victory.

Northeastern Oklahoma A&M averaged 42 points a game before the Kilgore College defense held it to only two scores.

Robbie Robertson

ASU three-star cornerback commitment Robbie Robinson and the Dematha Catholic High School football team remain undefeated. Dematha beat St. John’s 40-0 Saturday Oct. 3 according to the Washington Post.

Dematha went into the locker room at halftime with a 6-0 but then dominated the second half scoring 34 points. No individual statistics were reported on Robertson, a cornerback from Hyattsville, Md.
