Portland (Ore.) Jesuit defensive end Connor Humphreys (6-3, 275), has been a big part on both sides of the ball for the Rams in the early part of the season, helping them to the top-ranking in the state.

Humphreys was front-and-center in their win over a talented Jesuit team.

"It was insane being able to sing the fight songs and just an insane environment at Jesuit," said Humphreys. "It was a great game and a great environment. It was huge for me. Beating Jesuit was nice last year at home, but it's not the same as beating them on their home field. Coach Pyne has been big on traveling to win."

Humphreys committed to Arizona State in August, and he said not having to worry about recruiting has helped his focus and energy this year.

"I think committing early has helped me be able to stay focused on the season," said Humphreys. "We have such a great team this year and it helps being a captain that I don't have to worry about visits and just play football"

Humphreys made it down to Tempe for the Sun Devils win over Wisconsin and enjoyed every second of it.

"It was really fun and a sold out game," said Humphreys. "Wisconsin had a great team and they came in and Arizona State beat them."

Humphreys said that the Sun Devil coaches like him as a defensive linemen, but haven't specified end or tackle.

"They said they could see me anywhere on the defensive line," said Humphreys. "Hopefully I have a chance at earning a spot in the rotation."

Humphreys, who's been selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, will be returning to Tempe in January for an official visit.

In the meantime, he's talking to other recruits for the Sun Devils and building a good rapport with them.

"I talk to a few recruits and it's been nice," said Humphreys. "I talk to Manny Wilkins, Jamal Scott and some other guys like Korey Rush."

The Rams are 5-0 and face Gresham (Ore.) this weekend.
