Chino (Calif.) defensive back Ryan McFoy took his first official visit of the year to Arizona State this past weekend. The talented safety said he still plans to take at least two more visits but the Sun Devils will be very tough to beat right now.
McFoy, 6-2, 205 pounds and the younger brother of USC wide out Chris McFoy returned moments ago from Tempe and ASU should be considered a pretty solid leader right now.
"I'm really tired but I had a great time," McFoy said. "I flew out there Saturday morning and checked in to the hotel before heading over to the stadium. I toured the campus, then checked out the locker room, weight room and all the facilities. Then we got something to eat and headed over to the stadium for game time.
"The team was real impressive and it was an exciting game. I liked the crowd a lot and it was just a great college atmosphere. I was watching the safeties and seeing how I would fit in. Two of their starting safeties are seniors so I think I'll have a real good chance to come in and play early which would be great.
"Later that night, the players all went out and I had a good time. Tempe is a cool city and I felt pretty comfortable there. Terry Richardson was my host and he was real cool. He showed me a good time and I got along well with all the playes and coaches there.
"Sunday was an academic day and I met with some people in the Business department since that's what I'll be majoring in. At the end of the trip, I talked with Coach Koetter and told them that I wasn't ready to commit yet because I wanted to take a few more trips but did tell them I would likely end up a Sun Devil. ASU is definitely my leader right now."
McFoy said he'll visit Utah in two weeks (Nov. 11) and Oregon in December but didn't remember the exact date.
"ASU said they would hold a spot for me so I'm not worried about someone committing there before me," McFoy said. "I just want to make sure I check out all my options before I commit anywhere and the coaches there understand that."
