Another day, another elite junior college prospect committing to Arizona State.

Per Jason Jewell of Scout.com, the Sun Devils picked up a commitment Friday from four-star defensive end Christian Hill from Glendale (Ariz.) Community College.

Hill has a towering frame, standing 6-foot-6, 265 pounds. Scout.com has him ranked as the top strong-side defensive end recruit and No. 9 overall in its JUCO rankings.

According to 247sports.com, Hill also received offers from Oregon, Oregon State, Colorado State, UNLV, Purdue, San Diego State and Washington State.

Hill is Arizona State coach Todd Graham's fifth commit. He is also the first four-star pledge and the first front-seven defensive player to commit to ASU.

According to Jewell, Hill did not play football in high school, but served in the Air Force for four years and still is in the reserves. He will play out his sophomore year with Glendale Community College in 2015 and will join the Sun Devils in 2016 as a junior.
