Since he was 14, linebacker Loren Mondy from Lake Ridge High School in Texas said that he was going to play for Arizona State. Today he has signed his national letter of intent, making his commitment to Arizona State official.
Back in December, he also announced via Twitter that he was officially going to become a Sun Devil.
I am officially a Sun Devil it's such a blessing to be apart of something great ❗️ ❗️#forksup @SunDevilSource @DevilsDigest— Loren Mondy (@sandmanAPA) December 14, 2016
As it was mentioned above, Mondy’s first commitment to the Sun Devils came all the way back in July of 2013 when he verbally committed to playing for ASU at the young age of 14. He is also the youngest commit in ASU history.
At 6-foot-4, 234 pounds, Scout, Rivals, ESPN, and 247Sports all have Mondy as a three-star recruit.
Mondy’s ability to put pressure on quarterbacks and running backs from both an inside and outside linebacker position is something that can prove useful to ASU in the coming years.
It is well known that ASU has had its woes defensively most notably with tackling.. With players like Mondy, the pressure brought to the opposing team's offense can force a mistake from the quarterback or stop the run game at the line and as a result help solidify the defense that desperately needed help last season.
