While some complain, 2017 ASU pledge works

Whether fairly or unfairly, Loren Mondy (Mansfield, Texas/Lake Ridge) has been thrown into arguably the most taboo discussion in college football recruiting.

Ten days ago, Mondy gave the Arizona State coaching staff his verbal commitment. Not a problem if he’s an incoming senior. Not too much of a big deal for an incoming junior.

Mondy, however, is a 14-year-old defensive end/outside linebacker hybrid who just finished his eighth-grade year at Danny Jones Middle School in Mansfield.
