The Arizona State Sun Devils continue to make inroads on the recruiting trail in the state of Arizona. Half of ASU's 2017 recruiting class hails from the Grand Canyon state and that number grew on Friday morning with the addition of Mountain View (Mesa, Ariz.) WR Curtis Hodges.

Hodges stands an impressive 6-foot-8 and weighs around 200 pounds. ASU's tallest receiver is currently Ellis Jefferson at 6-foot-5. Hodges is rated a two-star recruit by 247 Sports Composite, coming in as the No. 303 receiver in the nation.
He had a breakout sophomore season in 2014 in which is averaged 12 yards per catch for the Mountain View Toros and as a junior he played both varsity football and basketball. Hodges, who is committed solely to football now, projects as a wide receiver, tight end, or even potentially a defensive end if he should add weight.
Below are highlights from Hodges' junior season.
