The Arizona State Sun Devils landed a commitment from Safford High School (Arizona) offensive tackle Ralph Frias when he announced his decision via his Twitter on Friday afternoon.
Frias, a 6-foot-7, 305-pound Arizona native, is rated a three-star recruit by both 247Sports and Rivals, and also received offers from Minnesota, San Diego State, New Mexico State, UNLV, Central Florida, Dartmouth and UMass.
While he was recruited by ASU as an offensive lineman, Frias plays on both sides of the ball for the Bulldogs. In nine games this season, he has amounted 25 tackles, two sacks and forced two fumbles.
At 6-foot-7, Frias would be tallest offensive lineman on the Sun Devils, as Quinn Bailey, Cohl Cabral and Zach Robertson all stand at 6-foot-6. Behind freshman defensive lineman Kyle Breed (6-foot-8), Frias would tie receiver Curtis Hodges for the second-tallest player on ASU’s roster.
This is Sun Devil head coach Todd Graham’s second in-state commit in his 2018 recruiting class, as Frias joins fellow three-star offensive tackle Hunter Mayginnes of Hamilton High School. Hailing from Safford, Arizona, Frias is about a 150-mile, three-hour drive away from Tempe.
With 19 offensive linemen on the roster, ASU will lose just two seniors after this season: A.J. McCollum and Tyler McClure.
