Coffman talks ASU visit

This past weekend marked the second time Cameron Coffman has visited Tempe. Was it enough to make an impact on his recruiting process? Devils Digest talked to the Raymore (Mo.) signal caller about his official trip to the Sun Devils.

"The visit went well, the weather was awesome and I had a good time," said the 6-2 175 Cameron Coffman. "I was hosted by Will Sutton and I had a good time hanging out with him and the other recruits that were on their visit Todd (Peat) and Gary (Chambers). I already visited there (unofficially) for the Oregon game so nothing was new to me but I had fun seeing the campus, meeting the academic people and just getting to know the coaches and players better."

Coffman naturally attended the Arizona StateStanford game, a contest in which the maroon and gold lost 17-13. The Missouri quarterback said that he watched several of ASU's games this season and that much like yesterday's contest he feels as if the Sun Devils are more talented than their 4-6 record shows.

"They are right there," Coffman stated, "and that game last night showed that. They should have beaten Stanford just like they should have beaten Oregon and USC. They have a lot of good young players that are really going to be good in the future.

"I like how the offense is fast paced and tries to get in as many plays as they can. If you are an athletic quarterback you will do well in this offense and that's what I can bring to the team if I got there. I'm a player that can get out of the pocket and make plays on his own if I need to. I'm also accurate with my throws and I make good decisions."

Coffman's recruitment has been a bit peculiar as schools such as Kansas State, Nebraska and Iowa State have rescinded their offers to him last month after landing other quarterback targets of their own. The fact that ASU already has one QB who verbaled, Michael Bercovici, isn't deterring Coffman from considering the Sun Devils. With his other offers being from Wyoming and Toledo Coffman is hoping to add to his list of suitors.

"I'm not sure what I want to do yet," Coffman noted concerning his recruiting, "and I'm still wide open. I'm waiting to see what other offers come up. My season just ended last week and I really haven't gotten into thinking about recruiting that much yet so we'll see what happens.

"I've been talking to LSU a lot a lot, as well as Wisconsin and Notre Dame, so we'll see if they offer. I don't care if they already have quarterbacks that committed to them because you will have competition anywhere you go. I love to compete and will work hard anywhere I go to get the starting job."

Coffman added that distance won't be a factor and that his decision could come as late as January.

"I want to go to a program that is good and that can compete with anyone," Coffman remarked. "That team is going to be one where I like the coaches and the players and can see myself there for four years."

Raymore-Peculiar High School finished their 2010 season with a 6-5 record. Coffman posted 3,300 yards passing, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, as well as 680 yards rushing and eight rushing touchdowns. He reported weight room marks of 225-pounds benching, and 285 squatting. Additionally he recorded a 29-inch vertical jump.
