Saulsberry Enjoys ASU Trip

Antone Saulsberry, a two-way standout from Bellflower high school in Bellflower, California visited Arizona State officially this past weekend and spoke with DevilsDigest upon his return home.

"I liked it a lot." Antone Saulsberry said of his visit to Arizona State over the weekend of the Arizona-Arizona State football game. "I got to kick it with [former high school teammate] Justin Burks and also my host Jamar Williams, so that was nice."

The 6-2, 195-pound two-way standout is being recruited at safety by the Sun Devils, though he may eventually move up to linebacker as he continues to grow and fill out his frame.

Having visited Washington State official two weeks ago, Saulsberry had another Pac-10 school to compare his Arizona State visit with and he came away liking both. "I couldn't really say one was better than the other. I liked ‘em both."

One thing that made a strong impression on Saulsberry was the rivalry between the two schools in Friday's contest. "I could feel the tension," Saulsberry said. "It was even in the stands and just all around. The fans hate each other it seemed."

This coming weekend he'll officially trip to Colorado State and then make a similar visit to Oregon the following week. Between now and his trip to Colorado State Saulsberry will have all of his in-home visits with each of the final four schools – ASU, Colorado State, Oregon, Washington State -- he's considering.

After the in-home visits and his two remaining planned official visits, Saulsberry plans on sitting down and making a decision, but not until then. "I want to make my other trips and then decide," Saulsberry said.

Saulsberry has been offered by each of the schools remaining on his list and he says he is on track to qualify academically.
