National Signing Day 2014: Darrius Caldwell signs with ASU

Christian Petersen

Arizona State has secured another junior college defensive tackle and the teammate of Dalvon Stuckey in Darrius Caldwell.

Moments after Arizona State received word that junior college wide receiver Eric Lauderdale signed with the Sun Devils, Todd Graham and company received more positive news from the junior college ranks.

Pear River Community College defensive end Darrius Caldwell has faxed in his letter of intent and signed with Arizona State on National Signing Day.

Caldwell is the teammate of fellow Arizona State signee Dalvon Stuckey, and the pair made an official visit to the school this past weekend. Both Stuckey and Caldwell were previously committed to other schools during their recruiting processes, but both junior college defensive players ended up signing with the Sun Devils.

Stuckey, a defensive tackle, faxed in his letter of intent early on Wednesday morning, but the Sun Devils had to wait until lunchtime to hear about Caldwell. A defensive end at Pearl River Community College, Caldwell will have a chance to make an immediate impact as Arizona State loses Carl Bradford, Gannon Conway, Davon Coleman and Junior Onyeali off of its 2013 squad.

At 6-foot-5, 245 pounds, Caldwell will likely line up in a rush end spot on the edge of Arizona State's 3-4 defense. Caldwell could compete for playing time at Devilbacker (vacated by Carl Bradford) or be a third down pass rush specialist.

Caldwell was committed to South Carolina prior to Signing Day, and also had offers from UAB, Louisiana-Lafayette, and Southern Miss according to his Rivals profile.

Rivals and Scout both consider Caldwell a 3-star recruit and the junior college transfer will have the opportunity to come in and make plays right away.
