LAS VEGAS - Marcus Baugh plans to remain patient with the recruiting process but Arizona State continues to look good for the Riverside (Calif.) J.W. North four-star tight end.
Baugh, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound prospect who's rated as the fifth-best tight end in the 2013 class, said this past weekend at the New Level Athletics Elite 7on7 that the Sun Devils are still high on his list but that a decision won't be made probably until after his senior season.
"I haven't really narrowed things down because I want to see which schools fit me the best and if I narrow it down soon there could be someone out there that I might really like," Baugh said.

"I like how (Arizona State) is just like where I live. It's nice weather, a good coaching staff and it felt like family there.
"The offense is great and I could see myself there. They seemed like really honest people. The coach is a nice man and I like how he ran the offense at Tulsa."
Ohio State is the newest offer for Baugh, rated No. 114 in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, and he said talking with first-year coach Urban Meyer has kept him intrigued about the Buckeyes. A trip to Ohio State could definitely happen.
"I talked to Urban Meyer a couple times," Baugh said.
"My aunt lives out there and so do a couple cousins so I wouldn't be the only one out there. I'll probably take my visits after next football season and then make my decision."
The four-star tight end said Arizona State will almost definitely receive an official visit. Cal, Florida, Hawaii, Miami, Ole Miss, Ohio State, Oregon State, Tennessee, UCLA and Washington have also offered.
