On Saturday, the Arizona State Sun Devils and Arizona Wildcats will face off in another rendition of the Territorial Cup. Plenty of kids of Arizona will tune it for whether side they or their family has declared as their favorite team. However, for all those eyes each school has missed on a few Arizona prospects that are currently playing well at other schools.

For all these rankings we will be using 247Sports’ database. Everyone included is still in school. These are just a handful

OT Austin Jackson

School: USC

High School: North Canyon (Phoenix)

State Rank: 1st

Stars: Four

Offers: (ASU) Yes (UA) No

Official Visit: (ASU) Yes (UA) No

This one might be a stretch. Jackson was the top Arizona recruit and had plenty of interest from national powerhouses such as Alabama, Notre Dame, Georgia and Oklahoma to name a few. Still in that regard for Jackson, who is currently playing his way into a possible first round pick in 2020, it hurt both schools to see him choose another Pac-12 team.

EDGE Hamilcar Rashed

School: Oregon State

High School: Chandler (Phoenix)

State Rank: 7th

Stars: Three

Offers: (ASU) No (UA) No

Official Visit: (ASU) No (UA) No

This one is a bit skewed but it still hurts. Reshed had a slow recruiting process because of low grades in high school and turned around nearly a miracle to qualify for Oregon State. The once Cesar Chavez turned Chandler transfer has turned into quite the pass rusher. Heading into the final week for most teams, Reshed has 14 sacks, the most in the Pac-12 and tied for the most in the country.

QB Brock Purdy

School: Iowa State

High School: Perry (Gilbert)

State Rank: 12th

Stars: Three

Offers: (ASU) No (UA) No

Official Visit: (ASU) No (UA) No

Purdy currently ranks third in passing yards among Power Five quarterbacks. The play of Jayden Daniels and the sparks here and there from Grant Gunnell may mask this one. Although the talent of Purdy has been on display the past two seasons and it makes you scratch your head how he seems there was little to no interest from either school.
