After offensive coordinator Mike Norvell left the Arizona State Sun Devils Thursday to become the new head coach of the Memphis Tigers, there was some concern whether his departure would take a hit on ASU's 2016 recruiting class.
Several recruits reiterated their commitments to Arizona State through Twitter.
Five-star wide receiver and top Arizona high school recruit N'Keal Harry:
