It has been no secret that Herm Edwards and Company have been hitting the recruiting trail hard around the nation. Of course eyeing the states close to Arizona like California and Texas, but lately there has been a lot of noise around states in the East. Class of 2021 Caleb Banks is a three-star defensive end out of Southfield, Michigan that recently committed to be a Sun Devil. Banks had 21 offers from schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Pitt and Washington State. In the end, it was the Arizona State Sun Devils that won out. Banks verbally committed to the Devils on April 10th, 2020.
New defensive line coach Robert Rodriguez was the one leading the charge with Banks recruitment. Banks’ 255 pounds and a tall 6 feet 6 inches makes him a great pass rusher with his lanky frame and wide wing span. ASU needed to address their concern with pass rushing and with Banks that might just be the answer. According to Rivals, Banks is the 24th best recruit in the state of Michigan. What ASU is getting in Banks:
-He moves well for the weight that he carries
-His frame still has plenty of projection left
-He likes to hit to the point that he fits better on defense despite his potential at offense tackle ( According to 247sports they list him as an offensive tackle and Rivals has him has a defensive end )
-He looks good on the edge and will continue to get much better as he refines his technique
