The Arizona State football program was dealt disappointing news on Tuesday, when top football recruit Eldridge Massington committed to UCLA over the Sun Devils. The four-star receiver from Texas had visited Arizona State over the weekend. He had previously been committed to USC.
Wide receiver is a top priority for Arizona State in this recruiting cycle, and although Massington's UCLA decision was disappointing, coach Todd Graham already has three commitments at the position. Joe Morris of Pierce College in California, Ronald Lewis of Harvey, La., and Texas' Ellis Jefferson have all committed to the Sun Devils.
Also, despite Massington's decision to attend UCLA, Arizona State did get word on Tuesday that offensive lineman Josh Tremblay had chosen to come to the school. Tremblay attended American River College in Sacramento this fall, and is the fourth junior college player to commitment to Arizona State in 2013.
Arizona State went 7-5 in Graham's first year at the school and will close out the 2012 season against Navy on Saturday, December 29 in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl.
