Arizona State Football had a tough day on Wednesday.
Coach Todd Graham had his sights set on two phenomenal defensive backs, two men that he felt he had a good shot to sign. Unfortunately, both Tahaan Goodman and Priest Willis committed to UCLA.
Goodman, a four-star recruit by Scout.com played high school ball at Rancho Cucamonga High School, an hour west of UCLA.
Goodman played at the same high school as twins Viliami and A.J. Latu, who both committed to Arizona State back in October. Apparently, that wasn't enough for Goodman to leave Los Angeles.
It seemed that as anxious as Goodman was to stay home, Tempe native Priest Willis couldn't wait to leave his hometown. The top-ranked recruit in Arizona once again left the state to play elsewhere.
The five-star Willis announced Wednesday night in front of hundreds gathered at his high school gym and more watching an online stream that he was committing to UCLA.
While this one-two punch was tough for a blossoming Arizona State football program, there are still plenty of attractive players on the wish list for the Sun Devils.
