I was out at Arizona State's Passing League Tournament on Wednesday and I thought there was a ton of talent running around. I didn't see every team but here are some of the notes I came away with.
*Buckeye LB DeAndre Miller was offered by ASU this evening. This is his 13th offer with ASU, Arizona and Boise State probably being the biggest offers. He surely looks the part. Played LB and WR and can really run for a big kid. Sports a 3.2 GPA and to me is a no-brainer offer.
*ASU became the first school to offer sophomore to be QB Bryce Perkins from Chandler. The 6-3 180 pounder has yet to take a varsity snap and would have to unseat returning starter Darell Garretson to do so but had a good showing tonight and this likely will be the first of many eventual offers. Bryce is the brther of Paul, who signed with UCLA.
*ASU also offered junior safety J.R. Hunt from Chandler according to Chandler HC Shaun Aguano. This is Hunt's third offer as Arizona and Montana have offered previously.
*Chandler Hamilton junior OT Casey Tucker is a freak!!! He could push for the top recruit in the state next year. He has big time offers already and deserves it. He is 6-6 and weighs 275 and still looks skinny. He has great technique in pass pro and is mean!
*I thought Hamilton had a good showing overall in the OL/DL session and I came away impressed and intrigued with sophomore DE Caleb Peart and DE Aric Burkes, who just transferred frm Desert Vista. Also really like OG Devon Fanai and OT Patrick Joseph. Joseph will move inside in college and the biggest thing that will hurt Fanai is his height. But he has great technique.
*Possibly the biggest question of the night was the status of four-star QB Tyler Bruggman. Sounds like he was down to Arizona State, Washington State and Arkansas but Arkansas has had a big mess with the coaching change and got a QB commitment, leaving ASU and WSU as the finalists. He is expected to announce in the next few days but is still up in the air. Sounds like is still undecided but has to make a move or be left out like what happened at Arkansas. He is a great kid that has done his homework and taken unofficial visits, so the decision will not be an uneducated one. He likes what Graham is seling at ASU but also loves the offense at WSU. We will know an answer soon.
*Peoria Centennial DE Marcus Farria is back. He sat out most of Spring. Loos thin now but boy can he rush the passer.
*I like Farria's teammate Sam Ray. At 6-3 200, he is undersized but he has a motor.
*Centennial has talented, talented offensive line. Seniors Hayden Johnson and Spencer Nathe already have offers and juniors Layth Friekh and Kamryn Bennett will have some before their junior year is up.
*Chandler High has some freaks at the skill positions. Probably only Hamilton and Cathedral from LA had the same kind of kids. I like the looks of Dionte Sykes and Kabian Evans. TE Patrick Baldenegro is thin but has good hands and a big frame.
*Peoria Liberty QB Tyler Rogers struggled a bit in the game I saw him against Williams Field but you can see he is talented and is a D1 QB. He throws a nice ball, has good size and moves around very well. South Dakota State and Air Force will not be his only offers.
*Anthem Boulder Creek CB Ryan McKinley is a great looking kid! ASU wants to see more of him and invited him to camp. He already has several FCS offers.
*I am shocked that Phoenix Brophy OG Charlie Renfree only has been offered by South Dakota State. He is put together and has a nasty streak but has good technique. He is great looking now at 275 pounds and can carry about 285-290. Keep an eye out for his linemate junior Adam Hall. Huge kid, still raw.
*Chandler OL Tyler Shank has really improved. Technique is getting better and has some mean in him.
*There may not have been a more athletic OL than Mt. Pointe's Kenny Lacy. Now the four-star prospect is not a finished product. He has only been playing OL for one year but the tools are there. He is big, long, strong and can run. Needs t work technique, punch and tenacity. He deserves the 30 offers he has, he will only get better.
*Lacy's linemate Natrell Curtis is the real deal. Mean and firey as they come. Strong, finisher, plays with god pad level and has good feet. Legit four-star kid next year.
*Love Mt. Pointe junior Jalen Brown. Very smooth athlete that can play on either side of the ball.
*One of the best looking kids there was Chaparral junior TE/DE Trevor Wood. Is a legit 6-5 230 and will only get bigger.
*I want to keep an eye on Chaparral sophomore OL/DL Keenan Walker. Has a frame.
*Jake Roh and Jordin Hamilton at Chaparral are legit. Have great bloodlines, play hard and are very smart and play with good technique.
