Wednesday morning, Arizona State coaches were sounding the alarms, letting fans know that the Devils were about to get another commitment.

After a few hours of waiting, the announcement became official.

Saguaro High School linebacker Connor Soelle declared via twitter Wednesday afternoon that he was staying in the Grand Canyon State and has committed to ASU.

His announcement came with a note, which in-part read: “Growing up I always dreamt of playing college football, through a lot of hard work, detection, blood, sweat, and tears, I have turned my dreams into a reality. . . I am happy to announce that I am committed to Arizona State University #ForksUp.”

Soelle, who was given a three-star ranking by both 247Sports and Rivals also had offers from Vanderbilt, Army, SMU, Nevada and New Mexico State. In Tempe, Soelle will join his brother, Kyle, who will be a redshirt freshman next season.

During his junior season at Saguaro, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound linebacker recorded 132 total tackles, including 35 solo and 4.5 sacks in 14 games. He also grabbed five interceptions for a total of 90 return yards.

His Hudl page notes that he runs a 4.46 40-yard dash while putting up 225-pounds on the bench press and squatting 425-pounds.

The linebacker joins five others who have already committed to the Maroon and Gold for the Class of 2019 — all, too, have come in the last two and a half weeks.

Quarterback Ethan Long was the first to give his commitment, followed up by quarterback Joey Yellen, offensive lineman Roman DeWys, athlete Ty DeArman and wide receiver Ricky Pearsall Jr.
