Adam Soesman picked up a few offers last week and especially one from the Pac-12 stands out at this point.
The Clovis (Calif.) Buchanan defensive back has not been to Arizona State yet but after having discussions with the coaching staff, Soesman said the Sun Devils definitely look good in his recruitment.
"I like their program and I know what they have going for them," Soesman said.
"Talking to their coaches I just really like what they had to say about how they choose their players and how they train their players and getting them to become the best football players they can be. I just really like everything they have going for them."
The specifics of what Arizona State looks for in its players especially stood out to Soesman, a 6-foot-2, 190-pound safety who now has offers from Arizona State, Fresno State, Houston, Oregon State, San Jose State and Washington State.
Many other Pac-12 programs are also showing interest.
"Basically, they said the first thing they look for is character in the player," Soesman said.
"The second thing they look for is whether he's smart and if he loves football and then talent is the last thing they look for. Obviously that's important but hard work is also a big thing for them.
"I want to get out there soon. I haven't been there. They want to get me down there sometime in the spring."
A standout at the NLA 7on7 in Las Vegas and the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles, Soesman thinks he might be close to another big offer as well.
Depending on his testing scores, the Clovis Buchanan recruit said Cal could be close to offering and if the Golden Bears get involved it would be something to seriously consider.
"I'm still waiting on my SAT scores for Cal so if I get those hopefully I'll get an offer from them, too," Soesman said.
