TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State loaded up on junior college talent in coach Todd Graham’s second recruiting class, but the Sun Devils lost the star high school quarterback they thought they were going to get.
Joshua Dobbs had verbally committed to Arizona State, but at the last minute changed his mind and signed with Tennessee, leaving the Sun Devils without a quarterback recruit for the second year in a row.
Graham didn’t talk about Dobbs by name but said the plan was to bring in a quarterback and that changed on Wednesday.
The 27 Arizona State recruits included 10 from junior colleges, headed by defensive lineman Marcus Hardison of Dodge City Community College. The list of freshman recruits was topped by linebacker Chans Cox of Blue Ridge High in Lakeside, Ariz.
