ASU strong on juco talent in 2014

Phil Steele has compiled a list of the top 75 junior-college transfers, and six of the 12 headed to Pac-12 schools are going to Arizona State.

You can see the complete list here.

And here is the Pac-12 list, with the number to the left being Steele's overall ranking.

12. Tui Talia, DL, Oregon

13. Claude Pelon, DT, USC

15. Eric Lauderdale, WR, Arizona State

23. Dalvon Stuckey, DT, Arizona State

35. Kweishi Brown, CB, Arizona State

42. Edmond Boateng, DE, Arizona State

49. De'Chavon Hayes, RB, Arizona State

50. Darrius Caldwell, DE, Arizona State

51. Antonio Smothers, LB, Arizona

53. Haniteli Lousi, OL, Oregon

71. Darius White, CB, California

72. Dominique Harrison, DB, Oregon

It's not surprising that four of the six headed to Tempe are defensive players. The Sun Devils must replace nine starters on defense. Also, Lauderdale might immediately become the Sun Devils' No. 2 wide receiver beside Jaelen Strong.
