Brent Russum Commits to Sun Devils

The 6-4 268 offensive lineman from Lewiston, ID waited until he met with his position coach, and as expected he chose the Sun Devils. DevilsDigest caught up with him following his verbal commitment.

"I Committed to ASU tonight," Russum said. "I just wanted an opportunity to know Coach Grimes, because he wasn't there when I was on my visit. We hung out, played some pool, did some bowling, and he's a great guy. This was an easy decision, because I was leaning towards ASU for a while."

In the past, Russum cited the low number of offensive linemen who committed to ASU, as well as the Sun Devils' track record of placing linemen in the NFL, as some of the main reasons which had him heavily favoring ASU in the weeks leading to his decision.
