Long Beach College 2017 defensive backs visiting Arizona State

DeMonte King and Kobe Williams, who played high school and junior college football in Southern California, are on campus at Arizona State this weekend.

Arizona State is currently hosting a pair of 2017 defensive back recruits who are also teammates at Long Beach City College. 

DeMonte King, a 6-foot-1, 190 pound defensive back, and Kobe Williams, a 5-foot-10, 175 pound cornerback, are on the Tempe campus this weekend as the Sun Devils look to fortify their secondary for the upcoming season and beyond.

King, who went to high school at Los Alamitos, is a sophomore with two years to play two seasons. He redshirted at Montana State before dropping back to the junior college level. He had 19 tackles in seven games for Long Beach last year. 

Williams just concluded his freshman year at Long Beach City College, where he had 21 tackles and one interception in 11 games.  A Long Beach Poly graduate, Williams said he was a qualifier, out of high school and as a result would have four remaining years to play three seasons at the Division I level. 

The Sun Devils have already signed one Southern California junior college cornerback with four years of remaining eligibility: Darien Cornay, a former high school teammate of King at Los Alamitos. 

In addition to Cornay ASU signed high school cornerbacks Alex Perry and Langston Frederick and high school safeties Ty Thomas, Evan Fields and K.J. Jarrell in the 2017 class. Thomas is already on campus and participating in spring football. Perry, Frederick, Fields, Jarrell and Cornay all arrive this summer. 

ASU is expected to sign one or two more defensive backs in the 2017 class per program sources.
