The Arizona State football season may be over, but that doesn't mean there's no Sun Devils left on the gridiron.

Five different Arizona State commits for the class of 2014 are taking center stage this weekend as each of them will be playing in a postseason All-American game.

Linebacker Derik (D.J.) Calhoun and defensive end Connor Humphreys are playing in the Army All-American game on Saturday while quarterback Manny Wilkins, running back Demario Richard, and wide receiver Tyler Whiley are all participating in the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl on Sunday.

The Army All-American game kicks off at 11 a.m. MST and can be seen on NBC and the Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl starts at 7 p.m. MST Sunday on Fox Sports 1.

Calhoun has impressed scouts at the Army All-American bowl practices with his speed, imposing frame, and his college readiness. The Sun Devils are excited for Calhoun to join the fray as he plans on enrolling at Arizona State for the spring semester.

Humphreys, Wilkins, Richard and Whiley are all solid verbal commitments and each are expected to make their pledges official on Signing Day on Feb. 5.

Wilkins, Richard and Whiley are all playing for the West roster in the Semper Fidelis Bowl which features a few different players that Arizona State has its eyes on.

One of the prominent uncommitted recruits in the Semper Fidelis Bowl is Kammy Delp, a 3-star defensive lineman from Pomona, Calif. who Arizona State has targeted for its defensive line.

Delp stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 310 pounds so his body type is that of an experienced collegiate defensive lineman. Arizona State already has a commitment from Calif. native Tashon Smallwood, but adding Delp would help fill the void left by Will Sutton.

Aside from Whiley, there are four other recruits from the state of Arizona competing at the Semper Fidelis Bowl. Three of those recruits have already announced verbal commitments to out-of-state schools, but Tucson native Andrew Mike is still considering Arizona State.

Mike is a 3-star offensive tackle and ranked as the 14th best player in the state of Arizona by Rivals.com. Mike's other offers include Arizona, California and Washington, but the only school he has taken an official visit to so far is Vanderbilt.

The Arizona State coaching staff will be watching Saturday's All-American games closely to keep an eye on its future talent and in hopes of securing more recruits down the road.
