Arizona State Football Recruiting: Chad Wheeler Commits To ASU

Make that five offensive linemen for the Sun Devils in this 2012 recruiting class. DevilsDigest reports that Chad Wheeler has become the latest verbal for ASU football. The offensive tackle from Santa Monica joins Evan Goodman and Stephon McCray from this week alone in terms of Arizona State O-line commits, and at 6'6", 265 pounds should probably gain the mobility and strength to become an effective Pac-12 tackle.

Let's take a look at his highlight tape.

According to Wheeler in his interview with Hod Rabino of Scout, he chose Arizona State over Cal. Apparently the Bears had yet to offer him (in fact his only other offer came from Harvard, so he's no academic slouch), so it looks like Wheeler didn't want to wait for an offer that might not ever come. He also counts the upward trajectory of the Sun Devils (coming off a mighty 6-6 season) as another point in their favor.
