Earlier this week SunDevilSource Publisher Chris Karpman spoke with Saguaro head coach Jason Mohns for his perspective on the three players at his program who committed to Arizona State Friday.
Mohns on Devil backer prospect Kyle Soelle:
"Kyle Soelle is obviously a new player to us that transferred over this year. He played primarily on offense as junior but he's being recruited as an outside linebacker but numerous schools including ASU. I think they're recruiting him as a Devil backer. Kyle is 6-foot-3 and a half and just under 220 pounds. He's really long and a dynamic athlete. He can really run, is a natural, explosive pass rusher. But he's an athlete too. He played running back, receiver, tight end. He can play in space, drop and cover. He's versatile. It's hard to find guys that athletic and long who can do all those things."
Mohns on tight end prospect Jared Poplawski:
"Jared Poplawski is true tight end that can put his hand down and be a factor in the run game. He's a talented pass catcher. He can split out and run good routes. He's a basketball player so he's a good athlete and knows how to use his body well to create separation. He is versatile on offense in that you can use him split out and go four wide or you can attach him or use him as an up back and get him involved in the run game. I know there's a lot of schools that really like him and he fits the scheme at ASU and what coach (Chip) Lindsey has done in the past. He likes to be in 11 personnel and that's what we are based out of at Saguaro with Jared. He opens up a lot of things for the offense."
Mohns on offensive line prospect Corey Stephens:
"He's worked out at the big man comp and the camp and I know they really like him a lot. Depending on how things shake out he could be a guy for them. Corey Stephens plays tackle for us but is an interior guy in college and they said if a spot opens up he's right there for it. We're kind of keeping our fingers crossed on that, he was born and raised a Sun Devil. He's big time maroon and gold and just a world class guy and a talented football player."
The Sun Devils have offered one addition prospect at Saguaro in the 2017 class, four-star safety K.J. Jarrell, who visited ASU unofficially Sunday.
Mohns on safety prospect K.J. Jarrell:
"He's our highest profile guy, a big time athlete, a lot physical safety that has really good range and ball skills but also is a big time hitter. He can play in the box. He has man cover skills. He can play a nickel type spot, he could be a quarter safety who can play in run support. He's a really versatile player that in the last five or six months has matured a ton physically and mentally. He's going to be special for us this year."
