Former San Francisco City College punter Michael Sleep-Dalton has signed and sent in his national letter of intent (all the way from Australia), making his commitment to ASU official. Sleep-Dalton gave his verbal commitment to ASU in early November and finished last season ranked fourth in the country in average yards per punt.

In 2015, Sleep-Dalton punted the ball 45 times and averaged 41.7 yards per kick. He was also coached by the same ProKick Australia teachers that Utah punter Tom Hackett learned from.

ESPN ranks Sleep-Dalton as the No. 2 JC punter in the country and is listed as a three-star prospect. Scout also has him ranked as a three-star.

Sleep-Dalton stands 6-foot-2 and weights in at around 210 pounds. The 23-year-old committed to the Arizona State Sun Devils immediately after receiving a scholarship offer from the coaching staff and did not receive any known additional offers after that date in November.

With current Arizona State punter Matt Haack still holding one more year of eligibility, it's possible Sleep-Dalton could redshirt the 2016 season.

Here are his City of San Francisco College highlights:
