NFL Factory Becomes Sun Devil Factory

What high school has produced more NFL players than any other in the country? Long Beach Polytechnic. In a matter of 2 days, ASU has tapped into the high school and managed to get 4 3-star commits for the class of 2012. It started with WR Josiah Blandin. In his junior season, Blandin averaged over 15 ypc, and showed good solid hands. At 6-4, 192 lbs, Blandin could pose as a deep athletic threat that ASU hasn't seen since Derek Hagan. Following Blandin was ATH Randall Goforth. It looks like this tightly knit team has aspired to take it to the next level together.  

ASU wasn't settling with just those 2 players. Later in the day, 2 more LB stars decided to commit to the Sun Devils. OLB Salamo Fiso, 6-1, 215lbs decided to join his teammates in Tempe. Fiso, the 41st ranked OLB in the country, is a quick and hard hitting LB who has a knack to find the ball carrier and stop him behind the line. The 4th commit from LBHS is WR Richard Smith. Running a 4.4-40 and standing at 5'9, 161 lbs, Smith could be a posession receiver who can make things happen after the catch. Smith is the most highly recruited of the 4 players, with current offers from U of A, Colorado, UCLA, and Washington.

It looks like the Devils have established themselves as a top choice for years to come for players coming out of Long Beach. With this pipeline building, you may even find Snoop Dogg switching from his USC jersey to the soon to be new and improved Sun Devil jersey.
