ASU picked up a running back out of Ohio who chose the Devils over Ohio State, Penn State, and Wisconsin on Wednesday.
DeaMonte Trayanum is rated as a four-star recruit by 247Sports and a three-star by Rivals. The Akron native attended Archbishop Hoban High School and his recruitment was led by first-year running backs coach Shaun Aguano. He is another big piece to ASU’s 2020 recruiting class.

At Archbishop Hoban, the tailback rushed for 1,313 yards and 26 touchdowns last season. The 5-foot-11, 210-pound halfback is a three-time state champion and he is looking for a fourth consecutive title next year.
Trayanum is the No. 24 running back in the nation and the top-ranked back in Ohio, according to 247Sports. He is also the No. 5 overall recruiting prospect in the state.
With the possibility of ASU junior running back Eno Benjamin going to the NFL after his junior season, it seems that Trayanum could have a realistic possibility to be a starting running back early in his career with the Sun Devils.
With the Trayanum decision, ASU’s staff has gathered eight commitments in the month of June and 11 total commits in the 2020 class.
