Commit watch: Future Sun Devils in action

How did Arizona State's 2016 commits perform in their games from last week? We recap their efforts here.

Freddie Holly

Freddie Holly is making it difficult for any future player to break his rushing record.

Holly is a three-star running back committed to Arizona State and plays for Norte Vista High School in Riverside, Calif. According to MaxPreps.com, Holly added 243 more yards to his career total Friday Nov. 6 in Norte Vista’s 49-0 win over Jurupa Valley High School.

Holly confirmed that on Friday Oct. 30, he broke the Norte Vista career rushing record in his game against La Sierra High School. The Certified Studs Facebook page also had a photo reporting that Holly had rushed for 5399 yards in his career on Nov. 2.

“I’ve been told that if you put in the work and work hard that good things are going to happen,” Holly said. “It was funny because my coach, he was like, ‘You need five yards to break the school record for career yards,’ and I was like ‘I didn’t even know.’ So it was pretty cool to show that hard work really pays off.”

It was the second straight game Holly rushed for over 200 yards and the fifth time he has hit that mark this season.

Holly only needed nine carries to gain his yards and score four rushing touchdowns. He said his offensive linemen were getting to the second level of defenders. Once he got to the secondary level, Holly said he relied on his power and agility to evade tackles.

“I try to do both and whatever I have to, like if I have to run you over…or I can make you miss,” Holly said. “It just depends on the situation.”

Holly and his Norte Vista teammates face La Quinta High School at home Nov. 13 for the first round of the CIF Southern High School Football Eastern Division playoffs.

He did not need a lot of passes to do damage to the Klein secondary and finished going 8-9, for 292 passing yards.

He also had 45 rushing yards on three carries.

Sterling-Cole is a Scout-300 prospect ranked the No. 296 recruit in the country. All three of his touchdown passes were thrown to Tyrie Cleveland. Cleveland, a four-star receiver, is also an ASU target and is ranked the No. 57 recruit in the country.
