Plenty of coaches still interested in Irvin

Even though Mt. San Antonio DE Bruce Irvin (6-4, 230) committed to Arizona State back in October, that hasn't stopped schools from across the country from continuing to pursue him. On Tuesday, the talented defender spoke with a plethora of coaches including the Sun Devils and he spoke to about that as well as his upcoming game this weekend against Palomar...

"It's been pretty crazy around here," Irvin said with a chuckle on Tuesday night. "I've been talking to coaches all day. LSU, Cal, Oregon, Arizona, USC, Oklahoma, Arizona State and a bunch of other schools were here and they all offered me and wanted me to come and be a part of their programs, but I'm still a Sun Devil all the way."

Irvin was only a part-time player last year for the Mounties, but this year he's been almost unstoppable, posting 62 tackles, 14 sacks and nearly 20 tackles-for-loss in 12 games while leading them to the state semifinals this weekend against JUCO-power Palomar.

"They're talented," Irvin said. "It's one of the reasons I came here to play -- I knew I'd be playing against the top talent every week -- and they have a really talented offensive line, especially the guy at left tackle (Brice Schwab) who committed to SC. He's a big dude who is really talented so it will be tough, but I think we will be ready."

Irvin committed to Tennessee over the summer, but made the switch nearly two months ago to Arizona State and said meeting with the Sun Devil coaches went just as expected.

"They are good coaches and really easy to talk to," Irvin said. "I committed to them because they are so much about football and they also care about you as a person, not just a player. I feel real comfortable with them and I'm still very much committed to them."

We'll continue to keep track of Irvin's progress and updated things if they change. He expects to sign his letter-of-intent during the early signing period which begins December 16th and he'll have three years to play two once he steps on campus.
