The Sun Devils grabbed a verbal commitment from Alex Anderson, an offensive guard from Louisiana.

The Arizona State Sun Devils picked up a verbal commitment Sunday morning from Louisiana high school offensive lineman Alex Anderson. The 6-4 290-pound offensive guard had double digit BCS offers and chose ASU over Arkansas, Mississippi State and Missouri.

Anderson is the sixth verbal commitment in Todd Graham's 2014 recruiting class, the first offensive lineman. Although Anderson plays both offensive and defensive line in highs school, he projects as an offensive guard in college.

The three-star prospect is rated as the No. 23 offensive guard in the nation by Scout.com. Anderson's impressive offer list includes: Arizona, Kentucky, Oregon State, Utah, West Virginia, Miami (FL) and Texas Tech.

It has been a busy week in recruiting for the ASU coaching staff, as the Sun Devils picked up a commitment from Scottsdale product Tyler Whiley earlier in the week. Four-star ASU commit Manny Wilkins has been actively recruiting some of the nation's top high school players to Arizona State and was pleased with Anderson's choice.

The Sun Devils landed two players from Louisiana in their 2013 class, wide receiver Ronald Lewis from Harvey, Louisiana, and defensive end Corey Smith from New Orleans. Both Graham and offensive coordinator Mike Norvell showed their excitement over the commitment on social media.

Note: Coaches cannot comment on recruits specifically until they sign their LOI.

Just a reminder that this is just a verbal commit, commitments are not final until February when players can sign their letters of intent.

Here is Anderson's highlight film.
