"It was a fun camp and I had a good time," said the 6-5 230 Ryan Deehan. "It was fun practicing with (ASU's tight ends coach) Coach Cozetto who has a lot of experience… Can't say that I liked one thing more than the other. It was all very nice. The school was actually much nicer than I thought it would be." Deehan, who's being recruited by ASU's defensive line coach Grady Stretz, added that he appreciated the manner in which ASU is recruiting him. "They're not overwhelming me, but they're definitely letting me know they are there."
Ryan Deehan had 61 receptions for 830 yards and five touchdowns to earn second team all-state underclass honors at Poway (Calif.) in 2006 as a junior; he benches 295 pounds and squats 370. "When I catch the ball I have good concentration and I'm able to separate once I catch the ball," he remarked. "One thing that I'm not strong at is blocking so I have to work on that."
Deehan claimed that he hasn't narrowed down his list of favorites, but that Arizona State, who offered him a scholarship in April, was "definitely up there." The tight end already attended the Stanford Nike camp, and plans to attend the UCLA and USC's camps this month. "I'm definitely looking at the academics of the school and how I would fit in socially."
The tight doesn't believe that he will make a decision before he takes a few official visits, and he did note that Tempe is likely to be the destination of one of those trips.
