2022 College Recruiting - 6 Commits

Last Player Grade Published on Jan. 26, 2022
Arizona State logo DE Blazen Lono-Wong (Kailua, HI) commits to Arizona State  View Class

Lono-Wong (6-4, 240) is a late riser who was able to get offers from Hawaii and Arizona State after distributing his senior film. He has good size and a decent burst. Lono-Wong plays hard and shows some hustle. I don't see the raw strength that I am used to seeing from prospects out of Hawaii. Lono-Wong is more straight-line speed than quick, twitchy type of player. He could be developed, but it will take a few years.

Blazen Lono-Wong's Player Grade: C-
Arizona State logo S Tristan Dunn (Sumner, WA) commits to Arizona State  View Class

Dunn (6-3, 192) is listed as a safety, but I think he's going to outgrow that position and end up as a linebacker. His coverage skills are good for either position. Dunn is comfortable taking on a running back out of the backfield or lining up against a receiver in the slot. He has plus-level athleticism that should help him in an off-ball role. Dunn must improve his play against the run and show more willingness to play close to the line when necessary. He offers a lot of versatility to a defense based on his unique skill set.

Tristan Dunn's Player Grade: B-
Arizona State logo RB Tevin White (Stafford, VA) commits to Arizona State  View Class

White (5-11, 200) fits the sort of bigger backs who I think Arizona State wants to run more of a pro-style offense. He can take on a big carry load at the position - it's not an issue for him to have 25-30 carries and to get stronger on the final 10 carries than he was on the first 15. White is not as powerful of a runner as I hoped to see; he takes things to the outside a little too much. But he does have a very good burst and some speed to break long gains. He should round into a more complete back when he's exposed to a better strength program.

Tevin White's Player Grade: B-
Arizona State logo S Alfonzo Allen (Hallandale, FL) commits to Arizona State  View Class

Allen (6-1, 200) is the second player from Hallandale (Florida) High School to commit to Arizona State, joining his teammate Jaylin Marshall, who committed to the Sun Devils a month ago. In a lot of ways both players are interchangeable in the back end of the secondary, but Allen is a little bigger and shows a little more eagerness to play in the box when necessary and provide an additional physical body to defending in that area. Allen can also get sideline to sideline. He can tackle well and plays with a great amount of energy. Allen's the type of defensive back who Arizona State coach Herm Edwards might see a lot of himself in.

Alfonzo Allen's Player Grade: B
Arizona State logo ATH Larry Turner-Gooden (Playa Del Ray, CA) commits to Arizona State  View Class

Turner-Gooden (6-0, 181) is a big-time athlete, one of the best in the nation and maybe the best two-way player on the west coast. He grades out highly as a wide receiver or a defensive back, but it's more likely that Turner-Gooden will play on the defensive side of the ball and playing for head coach Herman Lewis, a former NFL defensive back, was a big reason for the early commitment. Turner-Gooden has explosive speed, and on offense, he is a big play waiting to happen. Defensively, he plays hard and physical. He goes after the ball-carrier with an aggressive nature.

Larry Turner-Gooden's Player Grade: A-
Arizona State logo S Jaylin Marshall (Hallandale, FL) commits to Arizona State  View Class

Herman Edwards is a former NFL defensive back, and he likes bigger defensive backs in the secondary who can physically impact the game. Marshall (6-3, 190) has the size and length to play safety and occasionally move into a linebacker role. With Marshall's size and long arms, don't be surprised if he's lined up on the outside of the defense, especially in red-zone situations. He's been a versatile piece in high school who has played all three levels of the defense, and I think he can offer some looks as an outside linebacker and even a situational edge rusher in college.

Jaylin Marshall's Player Grade: B-
