The tight end room in Tempe is adding another body. On Saturday, former Mississippi State tight end Geor’quarius Spivey announced he was committing to Arizona State on his Twitter.

In three seasons in Starkville, Spivey hauled in 14 career catches for 153 total yards. However, he had a standout performance late in the season in 2020. Spivey caught five balls for 97 yards.

Coming out of Louisiana in the 2017 class, he was rated a three-star by 247Sports. His 6-foot-5, 240-pound frame is certainly attractive for a coaching staff and allows him to get jump balls like he did in the clip below.

When Zak Hill took the offensive coordinator job, it was assumed that tight ends would start to be included more into the offensive.

Hill and tight ends coach Adam Breneman were aggressive in the transfer portal, landing Oklahoma transfer Jalin Conyers, who impressed in the spring game. Now they have also landed Spivey. Senior Curtis Hodges also returns and should have a large role.

It is believed that Spivey will have three years of eligibility left and should be able to play right away.
