Commit watch: Future Sun Devils in action

A few of Arizona State's 2016 skill position commits played very well in their most recent games as the regular season draws to a conclusion.

The regular season is nearing its end for most Arizona State commits. As they prepare for the playoffs some ASU commits had some impressive performances.

Kyle Williams

Vista Murrieta High School quarterback Karson Greeley has an important job: put the ball in Kyle Williams hands.

“You get (Williams) the ball, and he does amazing things,” Greeley told the Press-Enterprise after Vista Murrieta defeated Chaparral High School 55-10.  

Williams is a three-star ASU wide receiver commit and plays for Vista Murrieta High School in Murrieta, Calif. William’s connected with Greeley on a 21-yard touchdown Friday Oct. 30.

“I had a grab in the back of the end zone, kind of like a one-hander,” Williams said. “It was nice.”

Williams also rushed for 56-yard touchdown in the victory.

As Greeley has become more comfortable running the offense, Williams has played more receiver. Williams said he will play quarterback as part of his team’s Wildcat offense to attack defenses a different way.

Williams hopes to add a lot more statistics to his high career records with a deep playoff run.

“I’ve been able to get open (and) find the open spots well,” Williams said. “But, I still have a lot of room for improvement in my game. I can always soften up my hands and crispen up my routes. This offseason and the end of this season I’m going to work really hard to try to perfect what I’m doing right now and help us win a championship.”

He plays his last game of the regular season Friday Nov. 6 at home against Temecula Valley High School.

Freddie Holly

ASU running back commit Freddie Holly had one of his top individual performances of the season Friday Oct. 30.
