Signing Day for the class of 2014 is fast approaching, but that doesn't mean coach Todd Graham and his staff aren't looking ahead to the next recruiting season. On Thursday, Devils Digest reported that Arizona State landed a commitment from class of 2015 running back Morie Evans.

Evans is a 3-star running back who hails from Texas and possesses outstanding speed for his 5-foot-11, 205-pound frame.

The high school junior plays running back and safety at Huntsville High School, but he will likely be considered an athlete with the ability to project at multiple positions.

Arizona State is the only offer that Evans' profile lists, but he does have interest from high-profile schools such as Baylor, Michigan, Oregon and Texas A&M.

Evans' 40-yard dash time varies by recruiting service, but and list him in between the 4.38-4.40 range.

The Sun Devils are loaded at the running spot in the 2014 recruiting cycle as they already have commitments from three different players in junior college transfer De'Chavon Hayes, 4-star athlete Kalen Ballage, and 3-star running back Demario Richard.

Evans is obviously an early commitment, but if his commitment sticks, Arizona State will remain a running back hotbed. Evans' freshman year will be D.J. Foster's senior year at Arizona State and by that time, the Sun Devils could have one of the deepest backfields in the country.
