The ASU defensive line will be getting better - Christian Petersen

The Sun Devil defensive front just added a big new weapon

Marcus Hardison, a four-star junior college defensive end according to scouting service Rivals.com, has chosen to sign with Arizona State. Hardison selected the Sun Devils over other finalists Kansas State, South Florida and West Virginia.

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Hardison spent two seasons at Dodge City Community College in Kansas after a prep career at Charlotte High in Florida. Over those two years, the versatile Hardison accumulated 96 tackles and seven sacks. ESPN.com listed Hardison as the nation's No. 5 junior college prospect in the 2013 class.

Hardison's addition helps to bolster a defensive line that already got the biggest gift of all with the return of Will Sutton for his senior season. All of last year's starters return, and Hardison brings the size and athleticism to play multiple positions along the line.

Hardison had several impressive offers on the table outside of the finalists, including Oklahoma State, Arkansas and Oklahoma. He will have three years to play two seasons as a Sun Devil.
