After missing on both Cordell Broadus and Rasheem Green, the Sun Devils finally got a good surprise Wednesday afternoon when four-star defensive tackle Joseph Wicker choose ASU over UCLA and Texas Tech
Wicker is a four-star recruit and stands 6-foot-2 and weighs in at 275 pounds. Rivals ranks him as the No. 12 defensive tackle in the country and No. 14 in the state of California. They also have him as No. 95 nationally. ESPN has Wicker at No. 172 in their ESPN 300.
Wicker took an official visit to ASU on Nov. 22 per 247Sports. ESPN also ranks him as No.19 at his position and No. 20 in the state of California. Wicker also had offers from Arizona, Colorado, Miami, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Washington.
With Jaxon Hood's status in question and a mediocre freshman campaign by Tashon Smallwood, this was a big pick up for the Sun Devils. Wicker also comes from Long Beach Poly, a well-known high school football factory which has had many prominent players come from their program.
