When the news of the NCAA’s investigation into Arizona State’s football program broke, most assumed that the Sun Devils would hit some bumps in the road during recruitment of the 2022 class. They hit one on Saturday. Four-star safety Alfonzo Allen announced on Twitter that he was decommiting from Arizona State.

Allen joins Jaylin Marshall — who has now committed to Georgia Tech — as the two players that have backed off their commitments to the program since the investigation started. Arizona State now only holds five commitments from the class of 2022, the lowest in the Pac-12.

However, it is now all doom and gloom. The Sun Devils have added three pledges since the news broke (running back Tevin White, defensive tackle Syncere Massey and safety Tristan Dunn). Arizona State’s top commitment Larry Turner-Gooden, a four-star athlete, has stayed firm on his pledge and plans to visit Tempe on November 6. Kicker Carter Brown, 247Sports third-ranked player at the position, also has not changed his mind despite making his commitment back in 2020.
