Out of all the players signing their letters of intent today to play football at Arizona State, none will enter with more hype and higher expectations than N'Keal Harry.
After two consecutive years in which the top recruit out of the state of Arizona chose to bolt the state for SEC country, ASU was able to corral the collegiate services of Harry, a five-star receiver from Chandler High School.
Harry announced his commitment back in a presser November 2nd a few days after visiting Tempe for ASU's crushing loss to Oregon, citing a number of reasons why he ultimately opted to stay home to play his collegiate football, chief among them ASU's pass-happy offensive scheme as well as being able to stay close to his grandmother out in Chandler.
Even after offensive coordinator Mike Norvell - who recruited Harry - accepted the head coaching position at Memphis, Harry reaffirmed his committment on Twitter, and that committment was set into stone with his signature today.
With his signature secured, ASU officially adds its highest-rated recruit since five-star Vontaze Burfict committed to the Sun Devils when the program was under the direction of Dennis Erickson.
Harry's rated as a five-star recruit by Rivals while ESPN, 247 Sports and Scout all have him designated as a four-star. After a senior season that saw him rack up 802 yards on 48 receptions for seven touchdowns, Harry was named an Under Armour All-American and represented the United States in the International Bowl.
