Arizona State lost the commitment of Trinity Christian School (Las Vegas, Nev.) big man Kenny Wooten on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.
Can confirm reports of Kenny Wooten's decommitment from Arizona State. Lethal athlete & defensive piece. Kansas & Cal in the mix last time— Corey Evans (@coreyevans_10) April 11, 2017
Wooten, a listed 6-foot-8, 205-pound power forward, originally committed to the Sun Devils in December. He had initially agreed to play with Nevada out of Manteca High School (Calif.) ahead of the 2016 schedule, but decommitted from the Wolfpack prior to the season. He then reclassified as a 2017 prospect before playing at Trinity.
Scout and ESPN both rate Wooten as a four-star prospect, while Rivals lists him as a three-star. Arizona, California, Kansas, and Oregon were among his most prominent suitors.
Wooten’s departure marks the third loss ASU has suffered in the past three weeks, following reported transfer decisions from forwards Jethro Tshisumpa and Andre Adams.
The Sun Devils’ 2017 signing class is now down to point guard Remy Martin and wing Kimani Lawrence.
The Maroon & Gold’s frontcourt entering the 2017-18 campaign is slated to feature returning forwards Ramon Vila, Romello White (sat out 2016-17 season after being ruled academically ineligible) and Vitaliy Shibel (missed 2016-17 season with torn ACL), as well as newcomers Mickey Mitchell and De’Quon Lake.
