Arizona State loses two top recruits
By Ted Miller
Arizona State lost a quarterback to Tennessee and a receiver to Nebraska on signing day.
The big hit was ESPN 300 QB Joshua Dobbs, who signed with Tennessee. The highly rated dual-threat player passed for 3,625 yards and 29 touchdowns and rushed for 419 yards and 10 touchdowns at Alpharetta (Ga.) High School.
Unless the Sun Devils uncover a quarterback after signing day, they will have not signed QB in two years. Dobbs seemed like an ideal fit for the Sun Devils up-tempo offense.
The other loss was four-star athlete Tre'vell Dixon (Baldwin, La./West St. Mary). Just this week he had flipped from Nebraska to Arizona State, but he ultimately gave the Cornhuskers his signature.
