Teofilo verbal but is recruiting battle over?

CIRCULATING LATE LAST NIGHT were rumors that Phoenix Moon Valley offensive guard Vi Teofilo verbally pledged to Arizona State. There were quotes from relatives -- but no one heard a thing from Vi. In an email sent to Scout.com Southwest Analyst Jason Jewell, Vi says, "Sorry, my phone is broken, but yes, I did (commit)." But is this recruiting battle truly over yet?

It was a tight race between ASU and Oregon State for Vi Teofilo, the 6-3 295 pounder -- and maybe it still is, there are rumblings that this Pac-10 recruiting battle royale may not be over yet.

Sources tell Scout.com that the Beavers aren't planning on stopping the push for Teofilo. Stay tuned.

But in the meantime, Sun Devil fans should be happy. They have a commitment from a quality offensive lineman, one with a high upside.

"I am a big fan of wrestlers, especially when they play in the trenches," says Scout.com Southwest Analyst Jason Jewell. "It teaches them leverage, hand combat and wrestlers have a sense of compeition about them. Vi is athletic, big, strong and can run. He is still raw in some areas and needs to become more of a finisher but his best football is in front of him."
