"It was a real good visit," said the 6-2, 230 Ryan McCants. "I liked the coaches; the players…the facilities were real nice. I hung out with my host player Ryan McFoy and he was a cool guy to hang out with. I liked everything I saw."
While playing for the Sharks, McCants scored seven touchdowns and collected 624 yards on 85 carries, averaging 7.34 yards per carry. Due to injury, he didn't play in all ten of his team's contests in the 2006 campaign. As a junior he rushed for 1,439 yards on 224 carries and 13 touchdowns and led the Sharks to the CIF Semifinals.
The Sun Devils have offered the running back a scholarship prior to the beginning of the season.
"I'm big back who's quick for my size," he said as he detailed his skills." I got a lot better with my field vision and I can make people miss. I do need to work on not letting one player tackle me." McCants also plays defensive end, but he's being primarily recruited as a running back.
Aside from Arizona State, Colorado and Nebraska are the other two schools he has already visited. "I don't have any other visits scheduled, but I do believe I will be taking some more," he claimed. "I'm not sure who's those schools are yet. I need to sit down with my dad and decide." The running back added that if he did decide to go on more trips that Nevada, Oregon State and San Diego State may be possible destinations.
Now that he has taken three visits, how do the Sun Devils compare to the two aforementioned Big 12 programs. "Arizona State is up there," he noted. "I did enjoy myself. I don't know if I'll make a decision based on those three visits, or if I will take the full five visits."
