Nance Ready For First and Only Visit

As quick as Dimitri Nance is on the football field, that's how rapidly developing his recruitment has been with the Sun Devils. A month ago, the Euless Trinity standout was approached by the maroon and gold for the first time. Ultimately, that's all the lone star running back needed to make his verbal commitment. Consequently, he's excited to visit Tempe this coming weekend.

"Arizona State is a good school and I heard a lot of good things about it," said the 5-10 195 Dimitri Nance. "That was the best offer I got, and I jumped on that real quick. It's a solid commitment and I don't plan to take any more visits." Prior to ASU offering, Nance mentioned that UTEP, New Mexico, and Utah extended scholarship offers. Missouri and Oklahoma State have been showing considerable interest as of late.

In his senior season, Nance carried the ball 313 times for 3,175 yards and 41 touchdowns. He truly saved his best for last in the 5A Division I Championship game this past Saturday. He collected 158 yards on 28 carries and scored twice, as Trinity poured on 28 unanswered points en route to a victory over Judson, which captured the school's first ever title. For his efforts, the running back was named the game's MVP. Nance admitted still being a bit on cloud nine, although he pointed out that his post-game celebration was low-key. "Our goal was to win every game this season and win the championship," he commented. "We started playing well early in the season, but we still felt that every game we had room to improve. Each week we just get better and better." He added that Coach Monachino, the ASU coach recruiting him, did offer his congratulations after the game.

Nance points to his vision and quickness as being his strongest attributes. "I'm real good running in the open field," he remarked. "I still need to get faster and stronger so I can play at the next level." When asked what attracted him to the Sun Devils, he replied: "They're in the Pac-10 and they get a lot of exposure. Phoenix is a great city. My brother knows some people down there and I heard good things about it."

This weekend, he'll get to witness all that the area has to offer in person.
