We promised- and when we do that we deliver no matter what it takes. 10,000 plus fans watched our Video Feed today and we could not have been happier with the outcome. Connor Humphreys, the #78 Recruit in the Nation and the #1 Rated player in Oregon, committed today and he chose the ASU Sun Devils. No one but OregonPreps.com /Rivals and NWPR had it. The 35 mile drive was worth the wait and Humphreys delivered on his decision and his interview. The Buffalo Wild Wings were amazing too!
The great thing about the Pac 12 is that it is a very fluid League. The Power in the League shifts and can shift and we see that happening. USC has fallen, the Ducks are hanging on to the Pac 12 North as UW and others rise, and Stanford looks to be the new Power. UCLA is right there ready to take it all and schools like Colorado, WSU, Arizona and ASU are showing they have horsepower and want to threaten to be the team to beat.
A kid like Humphreys will not single handedly change the Sun Devils future but he can be a part of their continued effort to rise.
We love the fact that ASU has a NW recruiting guy like Coach Joe Lorig with deep ties to the NW who ends up landing Oregon’s top guy and is hungry for more. We believe our Region is ripe for schools like ASU to come into and clean house. Connor will be the only player on the roster from Oregon joining two from Washington and we hope this trend can continue.
We need the Pac 12 South schools to realize our talent is deep and solid and ready to play. This is a new Trade Route if you will and we are grateful for the recruitment beacause our NW States and Hawaii are standing by ready to send our best.
Here is Humphrey’s interview with us. Great outcome for a great kid and the decision based on what he said was the best one for him; one he made after a lot of research.
