ASU earned a commitment from Caleb Banks out of Southfield Michigan on Friday.
The 6-foot-6, 255-pound lineman has played on the offensive side of the football but projects to be a defensive end.
This is only the beginning…….
We handle business from here on out!

Banks held offers from the likes of Colorado, Indiana, Iowa State, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska and Washington State.
According to 247Sports’ Allen Trieu, Banks has some fine-tuning to do, but the potential growth could make a huge impact at the next level:
Tall, long, lean frame. Carries his weight well and does not look as heavy as listed on the hoof. Can easily carry more weight. Fluid athlete who can get off the ball and make plays in the backfield. Can bend and turn the corner. Does not project as a weak-side speed rusher, but can be a big, strongside guy who can still get to the quarterback. Raw with his technique. Once his hands and counter moves become more natural, he will be tough to stop. Could also be a high level offensive tackle, but college plan for him is defense. Should be a starter for a high major program. Will need some time, but has too much talent not to project as an impact guy.
Banks is the second commitment of the 2021 class, joining quarterback Finn Collins as Devil pledges.
