Cornerback Cites Co-Favorites After ASU Visit

Following his visit last week to Washington State, Romeo Pellum was ready to pull the trigger and commit to the Cougars. After a visit to the Sun Devils a weekend later, it appears that ASU has just a good a chance to land the services of the Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) cornerback. Devils Digest talked to Pellum following his trip to Tempe.

"It went pretty good," said the 5-11 165 Romeo Pellum of his Arizona State visit. "I liked the coaches a lot, and that's probably the thing that impressed me the most about the visit. I liked the facilities – that's a pretty big stadium. The players were a great group of guys. The campus is very big and diverse and I liked that a lot." The cornerback was hosted by former Santa Fe Springs player and current Sun Devil wide receiver Nate Kimbrough.

Pellum admitted that his interest in ASU did increase following his visit, but is unsure when he will make his decision and if he will take a trip to a third school. "I can't tell who I like better, Arizona State or Washington State," he remarked. "They're really neck in neck. Tonight I'll know if I'll visit Oregon (where Pellum's uncle Don is an assistant coach) this weekend, but I'm not gonna take any other visits. It's possible I'll make a decision before that Oregon visit."

This past season Pellum racked up 58 tackles (35 solo), had 11 pass deflections and a four field goal blocks. He picked off three balls and recovered a fumble. On offense, he pulled in 40 catches for 916 yards, rushed 20 times for 220 yards and scored 13 touchdowns, including one on a kick return. He is on track to be fully qualified.
