ASU Olympic Sports Update: We're only a couple of days separated from the return of ASU football, but the 2015-15 Sun Devil athletics season has been underway for a couple of weeks now, and the ASU soccer and volleyball teams have gotten off to strong starts in the new year.

Texas A&M Players To Watch: Diehard Sun Devil fans already know Christian Kirk and Kyle Allen, a pair of five star recruits out of Arizona that spurned the Sun Devils to play their college football in College Station, but the Aggies have plenty of talent that they'll take to the field against Arizona State. Take a look at a few of the Texas A&M playmakers that will play instrumental roles in the outcome of Saturday's tilt.

Thon Maker to host Sun Devils in home visit: Bobby Hurley and Co. have been courting Maker to ASU since Hurley's arrival to the program, and sources close to five star recruit have positive things to say about the chances of Maker taking his talents to Tempe.

The Sun Devils will get one of their best chances at making a closing pitch to Maker when they visit him on September 11th. The 7-foot bruiser with ball-handling skills resembling that of a guard is expected to take a visit out to Tempe this fall, and if Hurley were to close the deal on the Canadian's services, he'd become the program's first five star recruit since James Harden.
