Arizona State Sun Devils football signing day preview
Arizona State enters signing day with 18 known commitments, including six 4-star athletes, as rated by Scout.com.
The Sun Devils are currently ranked 32nd in Scout's national rankings and sixth in the Pac-12 -- behind UCLA, Stanford, Oregon, USC and Washington.
The commitments include seven junior-college players -- headed by four-star defensive end Dougladson Subtyl of Victor Valley (Calif.), who Scout describes as an elite edge pass-rusher and a candidate for immediate playing time at Devilbacker.
ASU's high school commitments are led by Chandler High teammates N'Keal Harry, a four-star wide receiver, and Chase Lucas, a 4-star athlete, and quarterback Dillon Sterling Cole of Westfield High School in Houston.

Scout's pre-signing-day assessment: ASU got out to a fast start in 2016 recruiting, with more early commitments than perhaps ever before, but fizzled to a large degree down the stretch in its effort to match last year's best-reviewed class in history. Following a disappointing 6-7 season the Sun Devils signed the best junior college class in the country, with seven Top-100 prospects, four of whom are mid-year additions. The class has a chance to have a lot of immediate impact players but isn't deep on developmental talent.
