The Arizona State Sun Devils have added JUCO defensive back Deion Guignard to their 2016 signing class, head coach Todd Graham said Wednesday.

Guignard is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound sophomore from Euless, Texas. Despite being listed as an unranked prospect on multiple recruiting sites, he reportedly turned down offers from Hawaii, Houston and South Alabama in favor of the Sun Devils.

Guignard will have three seasons of eligibility left, including a redshirt season should ASU choose to use it.

He recorded 83 tackles, three interceptions, two tackles for loss and four pass breakups in 10 games in his only season at Tyler Junior College (Texas), where he played defensive back. Prior to joining Tyler JC, Guignard had played quarterback at Trinity High School.

Guignard is the second post-signing day addition for the Sun Devils, and is the ninth JUCO player of the class, bringing the total of 2016 signees to 20.

He is lauded for his explosiveness and size, and will look to provide needed athleticism to a depleted ASU secondary entering 2016.

Below is a highlight reel of Guignard's season at Tyler JC.
