A Closer Look: Arizona State Rankings

Saguaro wide receiver Christian Kirk leads the way, see who else made the top 80 list

It comes at no surprise that Scottsdale Saguaro wide receiver Christian Kirk has been named the top prospect in the state of Arizona.

Right down the street at rival Chaparral, offensive tackle Keenan Walker earns the number two spot.

Big athletes grab the next two spots. Cassius Peat from Corona del Sol and Dedrick Young from Peoria Centennial are coveted as prospects partly because of how versatile they are. Scout lists both as outside linebackers but Young has offers as a running back while Peat could play defensive end or tight end.

Arizona State has done very well, securing commitments from three of the state's top ten prospects. Chandler quarterback Bryce Perkins, Gilbert offensive tackle Steve Miller and Gilbert Williams Field offensive tackle Cade Cote come in at numbers 6, 8 and 9 respectively.

It has been quite some time since Yuma has produced an FBS player from the prep ranks but Yuma Catholic tight end Matt Pistone is a good one and has committed to Oregon State.


At this point, 14 of the state's top 25 prospects have already made verbal commitments.

Talent in Tucson

Southern Arizona has come talented players in the 2014 class. Six players in the state's top 30 hail from the Tucson area. Salpointe Catholic linebacker Taylor Powell leads the way.
