Arizona State Sun Devils head coach Herm Edwards said Tuesday redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Marshal Nathe medically retired due to a back issue, according to Doug Haller of azcentral.com.

Nathe, who redshirted his freshman season, did not see action in 2017. In 2018 spring practice, he typically lined up on the second-team offensive line as a center and did so as late as Friday evening.

The former three-star recruit from Centennial High School (Peoria) ranked as the 37th offensive guard in the nation and the seventh best in the state, according to 247sports.com.

The loss of Nathe shouldn’t do too much damage to Arizona State’s revamped 2018 o-line that is waiting on transfers Casey Tucker (Stanford), Roy Hemsley (USC) and four-star Jarrett Bell for fall camp. Hemsley is eligible for the 2018 season pending graduation from USC this spring.

Cohl Cabral and Quinn Bailey are the lone returning starters who lined up on Tuesday’s offensive line.
