Arizona State signed defensive back Darien Cornay to its 2017 signing class on Saturday.

Cornay is the second post-Signing Day commitment the Sun Devils have secured this offseason, pledging less than a week after tight end Ceejhay French-Love.

Cornay had drawn comparisons to current NFL cornerbacks Orlando Scandrick and Antoine Cason during his career at Los Alamitos High School (Calif.).

He garnered interest from Boise State, Washington and Washington State, among others, before ultimately playing at Cerritos College (Calif.), where he logged 31 tackles, eight pass breakups and one interception during his lone season.

The 5-foot-11, 185-pound defender is the sixth secondary member signed to ASU’s 2017 recruiting class, joining Evan Fields, Langston Frederick, KJ Jarrell, Alex Perry, and Ty Thomas as the others brought in to man the defensive backfield.
