Tryon Pulls the Trigger, Verbals to ASU

The four-star cornerback from the College of Canyons came back from his Arizona State visit yesterday, and one day of deliberations is all he needed to give his verbal commitment. As a mid-year transfer, he will sign a Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

Justin Tryon couldn't put his finger on why he decided to wait 24 hours following his excursion to Tempe, but said that he's happy he gave himself time to do so. "I had a fun time at Arizona State," said the 5-10 181 corner, "but maybe at times it was overwhelming. I was tired after that visit, and I just had to give myself some time and see what I really wanted to do. But now I know, and I'm a Sun Devil." He added that he plans to fax his letter bright and early at 7AM.

The cornerback fielded a call from the Sun Devil coaches about an hour ago, and gave his commitment over the phone. Tryon is expected to join COC teammate and fellow defensive back Troy Nolan who gave his pledge yesterday to the maroon and gold. Nevertheless, he didn't see both of them as a package deal. "It wasn't a deciding factor for me, but It's nice to play with someone you know."

Tryon had 39 tackles on the year, with six pass breakups. One of his four interceptions was returned for as 74-yard touchdown.
