Keegan Herring continues to impress, racking up 197 yards and two scores on 23 carries in only his third game. Herring broke a big run in the first half and appeared to be headed for a score when Marquice Cole of Northwestern forced a fumble as the running back was about to get in the end zone. Redshirt freshman Price Wilks also carried 3 times for 7 yards.
You can add true freshman Shaun Dewitty to the short list of newcomers
playing this fall. DeWitty will be on special teams as well as competing for time at
tailback. The staff felt the Colorado native was good enough to contribute on
special teams after recovering from injury. After discussing the issue of
redshirting this year or not, DeWitty and his family gave the green light to play
in Saturday's contest against Northwestern. The true freshman had 13 yards on
3 carries in the second half.
Rudy Carpenter saw action in the second half in relief of Sam Keller at
quarterback. Carpenter had a solid outing, finishing 7 of 8 in pass attempts for 74
yards and one touchdown. Redshirt freshman receiver Nate Kimbrough got on the
board with 3 catches for 33 yards. Kimbrough was also used in the return game
and had a nice 25 yard punt return.
Redshirt freshman defensive back Jeremy Payton had his best game yet on
Saturday. Payton tied for the second most tackles of the night with 7. The
Californian continues to tackle very well in the open field. Another newcomer at
safety, Zach Catanese, earned another start and was just as active as Payton.
Catanese also finished with 7 stops. JC transfer Keno Walter-White played a lot of
minutes despite losing his starting spot to senior Mike Davis, Jr. at corner
and made 3 tackles on the night.
Two newcomers on the defensive front recorded their first tackles as Sun
Devils. Redshirt freshman Wes Evans and JC transfer Shannon Jones each had a stop.
Adam Vincent continues to play his way into a nice reserve role at
linebacker. The Hamilton graduate had a solo stop on the evening.
