Arizona State had a busy weekend entertaining recruits one of the most sought after prospects that ASU had was four-star defensive end Will Powers (6-4, 230, 4.66) from San Mateo (Calif.) Serra.
“Arizona State was good,” Power said. “Last time I went down there I didn’t get a chance to interact with players and students.”
“I was able to do some of that,” Powers said. “I was also able to see more of the facilities.”
“I did not commit,” Powers said. “I want to see all my schools before I make my decision.”
Arizona State was Powers first visit. Cal will get their visit this coming weekend (December 17th) while Stanford and Oregon will be in January. He will visit Stanford January 7th and Oregon January 14th.
Does naming Walt Harris the new Stanford head coach help the Cardinal cause?
I don’t know too much about Coach Harris,” Powers said. “Right now I’m just trying to get a feel for him.”
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com Serra coach Patrick Walsh had this to say about his talented defensive end.
“Will has a great attitude and a great approach to the game of football,” Walsh said. “At a time when many players that have great talent don’t put in the work, Will is just the opposite.”
“Will is very open to learning new techniques and making himself into an even better player,” Walsh said. “He is a pleasure to coach.”
“Will uses his mental approach to the game together with his physical tools to disrupt plays,” Walsh said. “Will is such an intelligent football player.”
“If there is a player with better physical skills and that rarely if ever happens, Will uses his intelligence to find his opponent’s weaknesses and then he exploits it.”
