When Jackson Jeffcoat's name was mentioned as a potential piece to Arizona State's recruiting puzzle, many pundits thought the high school All-American might just give the Sun Devils a look, but that is all. It turns out the just a look, was all the Sun Devils needed to try and persuade the Texan to play for Dennis Erickson and ASU.

Now, with the recruiting period dwindling down to its final days, Jeffcoat has stated that he will announce his decision on Jan. 31.

As of right now, Jeffcoat is considering Oklahoma, Texas, Houston, as well as Arizona State. Sure being in the top four to sign one of the most talented recruits in the country is good, but to actually sign him would be out of this world satisfying, for all maroon and gold supporters.

With much speculation as to whether Jeffcoat will actually sport the ASU hat on Signing Day, Dennis Erickson and the Sun Devils have tried to leave no rock unturned and persuade other top talent to play in the "Valley of the Sun".

With Jeffcoat holding out until the final week of recruiting, Erickson has already received commitments from Nduka Onyeali, a four-star defensive end from Denver, CO, Jordan McDonald, a local product from Scottsdale, AZ and also just picked up a commitment from a California pipeline that has served the Sun Devils quite well in recent years. 

Lee Adams, a defensive lineman from Corona Centennial, is the latest Centennial Husky that has pledged to play for ASU. If Adams, 6' 2", 255 pounds, has half of the impact that former Centennial standouts and current Sun Devils Vontaze Burfict, Will Sutton, Brandon Magee, and Shelly Lyons have had, then the Sun Devils have look to have received another top tier athlete from the state of California.

However, will ASU's decisions to reinforce their defensive line recruiting hinder the possibly of Jeffcoat declaring to play in Tempe? Tune in on Jan. 31 for that decision.
