Get to know ASU's defensive leader and his Hollywood personality.

Ed Szczepanski-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Brandon Magee, the senior linebacker and captain of ASU's stout defense, is known as a great player on the field. The California native currently averages more tackles-per-game than any other Sun Devil player.

Beyond the gridiron, Magee is entertaining, often making appearances on radio because of his goofy and unique personality. Therefore, the next installment of our Get To Know Your Sun Devils series was right up his alley.

Who do you think is the prettiest girl in the world?

[Magee's face lights up] "Prettiest girl in the world, let me get this one right. I like Jessica Biel, she's thick fat, Adriana Lima, write all these down by the way, never know who will see it. Who else is single around here? Any models?"

What professional sport teams do you root for?

"The Red Sox. Football wise, the Bengals Boom."

Looking ahead to next year, will wee see you in the NFL or as a Red Sock?
