ASU Football Recruiting: Sun Devils pick up verbal commit from Texas native Nick Ralston

Arizona State is focused on closing out a solid 2014 recruiting class, but that won't keep the Sun Devils from looking ahead.

As Signing Day for the class of 2014 approaches, both Rivals and Scout recruiting services indicate that Arizona State is set to land one of its best recruiting classes in recent memory.

Less than five days separate football coaches and fax machines, but that hasn't stopped the Sun Devils from looking ahead to their next recruiting cycle.

On Saturday afternoon, Texas native and running back Nick Ralston tweeted that he has verbally committed to Arizona State as part of its 2015 recruiting class.

In his junior season, Ralston helped lead Argyle High School to a perfect 16-0 record and a Class 3A Division II state title. According to stats from Maxpreps.com, Ralston rushed for 1,800 yards on 223 carries and racked up 31 touchdowns. Ralston's most impressive performance came against Melissa High School in a 365-yard, 5-touchdown effort.

Ralston's ESPN recruiting profile lists his height at 6-feet and his weight at 213 pounds, which is relatively large for a high school running back. Ralston also plays linebacker for Argyle High School and though we can only speculate, his body type looks like he could be better suited for defense at the college level.

Ralston also becomes the second running back from Texas to commit to Arizona State for the class of 2015. Morie Evans of Huntsville High School committed on Jan. 16. Like Evans, Ralston's first offer came from the Sun Devils as 247Sports lists Dec. 19 as the date Arizona State officially offered.
