McGaha in Holding Pattern

Phoenix Moon Valley's standout Chris McGaha visited the hometown Sun Devil this past weekend. He told DevilsDigest that while he enjoyed his trip, he has yet to decide on the school of his choice.

"I didn't commit on the visit," said the 6-3 185 Chris McGaha. "I'm probably gonna do so this week. I just want to sit down with all the schools because I'm not 100% sure. I do know that I need to make a decision this week and get it over with." The other two schools in consideration are Boise State and San Diego State. "I'm not sure which school is my favorite. They're all equal. But I just came back from ASU so that's fresh in my mind."

Even though the wide receiver is quite familiar with ASU and what it has to offer, he did manage to learn some new stuff about the school. "My host was Andrew Pettes (a former Moon Valley teammate and current ASU tight end). It was a fun visit. I've seen a lot of things before, but I did get the inside scoop from the players and coaches. Andrew talked to me about his schedule every day with school and football. I also got the see the dorms stuff like that."

McGaha did learn from Devils Digest of today's commitment by quarterback Derek Shaw, who was also in Tempe this past weekend. "We got along real well," the wide receiver commented, "He told me that he wants to throw the ball to me (smile)."

Staying close to home has been and will be a strong consideration for McGaha who was voted Big School Player of the Year by the Arizona Republic. The wide receiver was an integral part of the 4A champions and undefeated Moon Valley Rockets. The ASU prospect had 1,593 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns during his stellar senior season.

"Yeah, my family and friends, every I go…they want me to play close to home at ASU," he said laughing. "I'm getting the pressure. ASU talked to me about playing the best players in the state like Zach Miller and Kyle Caldwell. That's something I take in consideration. I'm obviously not going to Arizona, so if I'm staying in-state it's gonna be with ASU."
