Things Moving Quickly with Inferrera and ASU

Even though Honolulu is thousands of miles away from Tempe, the Sun Devils' recruitment with Offensive Lineman Jeremy Inferrera is quickly gaining ground. What did the St. Louis high school standout say about his trip this weekend?

"It was real good." Said the 6-3 265 Inferrera. "I really liked the facilities and the weight room. It was nice walking around the campus. The coaches were nice, and they got along with the players. It really felt like a family." He added that the unseasonable warm January weather in Tempe (75 degrees and sunny) reminded him of Hawaii. The lineman, who also excels in track and field events, enjoyed his host player Kellen Bradley. Spoken like a true lineman, he did enjoy the BBQ dinner at coach Dirk Koetter's house.

Ironically, ASU has only started recruiting Inferrera, who was voted All-State first team by the Honolulu Advertiser, last week. "They called me on Monday for the first time, and I came down on Friday. I didn't mind that they started recruiting me late." Case in point – Inferrera is considering the Sun Devils and his hometown Rainbows (who he will visit on Jan. 24th) as the schools of his choice. "It's a tough decision leaving home, but if I want to do it I'm gonna do it. I'm gonna make a decision after my Hawaii visit." He did mention that the fact that ASU has a few players of Samoan and Tonga decedent would make his decision to come to ASU a little easier.

The St. Louis HS standout, who just received word that he has qualified academically, admitted that his pass blocking is far more superior than his run blocking. "I'm a very intense player, but I need to hit the weights and get stronger." Time will tell if the ASU will have an opportunity, with its world-class weight room, to help Inferrera with his physical quest.
