From: Dallas, Texas
High School: Kimball
"My visit to Arizona State went real well," said Hardeman. "It was real fun. I like what I saw while I was there. The coaches were real cool. I like the fact that the coaches interacted with all of the players. They did not just talk to the players from the positions they coached. All of the coaches, regardless of position, were involved with all the players. The whole environment up there was real nice and relaxed."
Defensive line coach Ted Monachino is after him for the Devils.
The Texas product has offers from Tulsa and ASU. He will visit Tulsa next weekend. From there, Hardeman is not sure what he'll do. "I don't have anything else scheduled, so we'll see. There are some other schools that have been showing me a lot of attention, but they have not spoken about visits or offer yet."
Kimball finished the year at 7-4 and lost in the first round of the playoffs. Hardeman totalled 70 tackles, six sacks, three forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He was named second team all-district as a junior and first team as a sophomore. All schools like him as a d-end. He has performed at that position as well as offensive tackle.
Hardeman scored an 820 on his SAT and he carries a 3.0 core GPA.
He has not scheduled any in-home visits.
