Per multiple reports, Lincoln High School (NJ) wide receiver Frank Darby will commit to Todd Graham and the Arizona State Sun Devils later today.

Darby, who is from the same city as Arizona State head basketball coach Bobby Hurley, hauled in 35 receptions and 10 touchdowns in his senior season last fall. He was previously committed to Iowa, but did not sign with the Hawkeyes due to academic concerns that have since been remedied.

The addition of Darby at wideout addresses a key need for Graham and offensive coordinator Chip Lindsey, who saw Devin Lucien, D.J. Foster, and Gary Chambers all graduate after the 2015 campaign. He is the first late addition to the class of 2016 for the Sun Devils.

"We are never finished," said Graham when addressing the media on National Signing Day in February. "Last year, we added a couple of guys late who made a fairly big impact. We'll see what happens moving forward."

Darby is rated as a three-star prospect by Scout. The Jersey City, NJ product was also considering Virginia Tech, Boston College, and Rutgers, among other schools.
