Hanley hopes things pick up

Three-star defensive tackle Devaughn Hanley hasn't picked up any offers yet and he thinks it's because college coaches are waiting to see how he does on an algebra class over winter break.
If he does well, the Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr standout thinks he could get some offers with Arizona State, Nevada, Idaho and Ohio showing the most interest. Things are looking good but Hanley said his recruitment is still slow because of the class.
"They want to wait and see what I do with the algebra class, to see if I'm going to pass it," Hanley said.
"It has been tough in a way. I feel like all my friends and everybody else is getting offers and I'm the last one hanging around. Everybody is seeing what I'm going to do with that class and everything like that."
Arizona State has moved to the top for Hanley, who said he enjoyed his experience in Tempe when he visited for the UCLA game. He has also taken a trip to meet with the Bruins this year.
Mainly, though, Hanley is just looking for offers and said he's willing to listen to any programs that want to talk with him. If Hanley had his wish, Arizona State would be his favorite.
"ASU is my favorite but right now I'm looking at anybody who offers," Hanley said.
"When I went up there about four weeks ago when they played UCLA it was pretty nice and I liked the campus and the area. I talked to the coaches also and it was pretty nice. They seem really interested in me. As soon as I get that class straight I should be all right."
Hanley finished with 98 tackles and eight sacks this season. The 6-foot-3, 264-pound prospect is rated No. 54 at defensive tackle and No. 97 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
