Long Beach Poly Safety Enjoys ASU Camp

Vaughn Telemaque attended the Sun Devils senior camp on Sunday, and Devils Digest caught up with him later that day to get his impressions

"Arizona State was a great camp," said the 6-2 190 Vaughn Telemaque. "I got to the check out the heat and like (ASU's safeties) Coach Lubick said the competition out there was fierce. I really liked the weight room, and it was nice that the strength coach gave us some tips how to get stronger even though we don't go to school there. The thing that got me the most was the stadium. I can only imagine how it looks when it's sold out and going wild."

The Sun Devils' recruitment of Telemaque started just last week, and naturally the maroon and gold liked what they saw in this short period to invite the safety to their camp. Telemaque added that he did have some knowledge of the school, since his cousin does attend ASU. "I'm really liking Arizona State," he stated. "The coaches are straight up and teaching you to get better is their goal. I kind of knew I was gonna like it before I went to camp, just because of what I heard from my cousin. Now that I went there I'm really excited about the school and I'm looking for an offer from them."

As a junior Telemaque collected 54 tackles, four pass deflections and two interceptions for the 11-2 Jackrabbits. "I can read the field much quicker than a lot of players and I like to hit," he said of his skills. "I need to work on my coverage skills. I can jam and press receivers, but I do need to work on my man-to-man coverage skills."

To date no school has extended Telemaque an offer. His top three schools consist of ASU, USC (he will attend camp there later this month) and Oregon. "I'm looking for honesty from the coaches," he noted concerning what he looks for in a school. "I don't want the coaches to tell me that I'm gonna start and then I get there I have no chance. I want the coaches to tell me how they like me and how I fit into their program. Academically all the schools are top-notch."
