Will Powers Still a Man of Mystery

The four-star defensive end from Junipero Sera high school has always been tight lipped as to who his favorite school is. Following his official trip to ASU, he talked to Devils Digest.

"It was pretty nice," said Will Powers of his trip to Tempe. "It's hard to judge because this was my first visit, and I can't make any comparisons right now. But overall it went well. I met a lot of good people - players and coaches." Powers was hosted by tight end Zach Miller.

When asked what aspect of the visit he was most impressed with, he replied: "It was nice to see all the players get along. They joke around a lot, but everything is in good taste. They seem to have a good time together."

Even though he's one of the most coveted defensive linemen in the West Coast, Powers is very humble when he evaluates his own skills. "There's always things to work on," he said. "I'm not doing anything perfect. Little things like my stance are things I can improve on. I do have the desire to always get better, so that's a strong point of mine."

On paper, the Sun devils' defensive end is an area in great need for an upgrade and development of depth. Powers stated that this point was definitely mentioned during this weekend. "They (ASU coaches) basically told me that they'll be some openings in the next year or two at defensive end," he commented. "So there's a possibility that I can come and play early. Of course, this is all based on how fast I'll be able to adjust, so that's on me."

Naming a favorite school or schools is a matter that is normally more fluid than engraved in stone. This is why the defensive end isn't in a hurry to make dramatic declarations. "Hard to say who's my favorite right now," claimed Powers. "If I say who's my favorite now, It can change next week after I take another visit. I'll wait until the end of the visits and decide where all the schools are at, and the bottom two will be probably cut off, and I'll make my decision from my top two."

Powers confirmed that he's visiting Cal December 17th, Stanford Jan.7th, and Oregon Jan.14th.
