It's no secret that Hugh Freeze and his coaching staff must find some help on the defensive front for this recruiting class.

In fact the Red Wolves will be searching every junior college in America for instant help at defensive end and defensive tackle.

One guy that recently received an offer from ASU is Texas' Trinity Valley Community College defensive tackle Ty McKinney.

McKinney, a 6-foot-3, 310-pound interior lineman, confirmed with AStateNation recently that he indeed has an offer and interest in the Red Wolves.

"Coach (Chris) Kiffin came to my school last Friday," McKinney said. "He is recruiting another defensive end and a wide receiver from our school. I really like Coach Kiffin a lot. His brother is the Head Coach at USC, his father is Monte Kiffin that coached in the NFL for a lot of years."

McKinney feels that Kiffin's knowledge and connections can prepare him for the next level after college football.

"He knows what it takes to get to the league," McKinney said. "He can help get me there."

McKinney currently has offers from Arkansas State and Kansas.

"I plan on taking official visits to both schools," McKinney confirmed. "I may have to reschedule my trip to Kansas, hopefully we will be still playing for a conference championship."

McKinney played his high school football at Weatherford Texas and will graduate from Trinity Valley in May.

He has an older brother that plays basketball at TCU.
