Last week Arizona State signed nine Arizona high school prospects in its 2017 class. That was the largest number of instate recruits ASU had signed since 2002. Sun Devil coach Todd Graham's hiring of Donnie Yantis as Assistant Athletic Director for Recruiting a year ago paid immediate dividends. But with the 2018 in-state class lacking Power 5 conference prospects compared to recent years, the Sun Devils are expected to sign fewer local recruits next year.
2018 Arizona recruit primer
Josiah Bradley is Saguaro's top returning prospect and shared a secondary last year with 2017 ASU safety signee K.J. Jarrell. The three-star recruit projects as Bandit/Spur for the Sun Devils, and is a bruising in the box safety. On a talented veteran Sabercat team he posted over 600 yards of total offense and eight touchdowns on offense and 25 tackles on defense. He should be one of the top two-way performers in the Arizona next year. In addition to ASU, he claims offers from Cal, Louisville, Nebraska and Oregon State
For the second year in a row North Canyon has the state's top rated prospect, four-star wide receiver Solomon Enis. Enis is a big receiver prospect at 6-foot-3 and 210 pounds. Some view him as a hybrid Y-type option in the slot, while others see him a a perimeter weapon. He posted 64 receptions for 1144 yards and 10 touchdowns last year. He is the son of former Penn State star and Chicago Bear first round draft pick Curtis Enis. Arizona, ASU, Duke, UCLA, Utah and Vanderbilt are his current offers.
Joey Ramos is the top ranked offensive lineman in Arizona's 2018 class. The Deer Valley three star prospect is the Sun Devils' most recent instate offer, picking up the opportunity from new offensive line coach Josh Henson shortly after Henson was hired. He also has offers from Arizona, Cal, Iowa State, Nebraska and Utah. A swing prospect, Ramos plays left tackle at Deer Valley and could play on the edge in college but is perhaps better suited to be a guard or even a center. He is also a talented long-snapper.
