Junior college pass rusher Koron Crump put Arizona State in his Top-3 in July and recently reiterated the Sun Devils remain one of his top choices.
Crump said he is planning to take an official visit to ASU at the end of his junior college season.
“They’re still high on my list,” Crump said. “I still talk to them once a week.”
The Top-3 that Krump provided to SunDevilSource a few months ago consisted of ASU, Baylor and Tennessee. Since then, he said Cal has joined the group.
So far, Crump has only visited Baylor officially. He hopes to travel to ASU’s campus in December for an official visit but, has not set a date with coaches.
The ASU coaching staff is recruiting Crump to play its Devil backer position.
ASU received its first Devil backer prospect commitment Wednesday from four-star defensive end Dougladson Subtyl.
Like Subtyl, Crump is a junior college defensive end. Crump is a three-star defensive end from Fort Scott Community College in Fort Scott, Kan.
The Subtyl commitment is impactful for the 2016 class but, the ASU coaching staff is always looking to add depth to the Devil linebacker position.
Crump has stayed interested in the Sun Devils because of the Devil position.
“(I like) the multiple things it can do (and) how they get to the quarterback,” Crump said.
When Crump makes is trip to Tempe, he wants to partake in the typical official visit activities. He wants to see the campus, football facilities and meet the coaches and players.
Recruits who visit in December often have more time to talk with coaches than those who visit during the season. The coaches have more time to converse with recruits because they are not as busy prepping for a weekly opponent.
Crump said when he talks with ASU coaches he will inquire about the defensive scheme and the football team’s daily schedule. He wants to find out exactly what it would be like if he were a Sun Devil football player.
Crump does not have and exact timeframe in mind for his commitment. But, he said it might be “soon” before he takes any more official visits.
