Austin (Texas) Westlake quarterback Nick Foles seemed completely confident with his early commitment he made to Arizona State last May. Even in January, the talented prospect seemed as solid as ever despite the Sun Devils having a new coaching staff.
That has apparently changed.
The 6-foot-5, 235-pounder de-committed from Arizona State on Saturday. Foles says his commitment had nothing to do with ASU taking three quarterbacks. He was willing to give the new coaching staff a chance, but in the end Foles decided to look at other options which would be better for everybody to be happier with the situation.
"They said my shoulder wasn't a worry, but I think they were worried about it," Foles said. "I initially injured it at the beginning of the football season, but played with it all year. I had surgery, I'm doing well, and I'm only two months from lifting or throwing."
Foles says that he's now opened up the recruiting process to all new possibilities. Michigan State and Baylor are two schools that have showed late interest, but he's unclear of which schools have offers on the table for him.
"After Signing Day, that's probably what's going to happen with a decision," he said. "I don't know of any schools that have put that offer on the table or said it's still there. Everybody is even to me right now and I'm just going to be patient and wait."
Foles, who is rated as the No. 99 overall prospect in the state of Texas, also says that he wishes the new quarterback commitments for Arizona State the best and has no hard feelings with the Sun Devils.
