Eubank solidifies commitment to ASU

Posted Feb 2, 2011

The Sun Devil nation can exhale. After some anxious hours for ASU coaches and fans, Corona (Calif.) Centennial quarterback re-affirmed his commitment to the Sun Devils, after considering both Utah and Pitt. He made his announcement Wednesday afternoon on and faxed his letter of intent to the school.

In his junior season at Corona (Calif.) Centennial Eubank completed 84 of 143 attempts for 1,123 yards, nine touchdowns and eight interceptions and didn’t command any serious recruiting attention prior to the 2010 campaign.

However, as a senior Eubank completed 165 of 245 passes for 2,831 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also ran for 1,329 yards and 19 TDs on 136 carries. His recruitment picked up steam the middle of the season and ASU was in fact his first BCS offer in late October.

Nearly two months later and less than 24 hours from the end of his high school career, Eubank verbal to Arizona State. Nonetheless, this hasn’t stopped other programs, such as Utah and Pittsburgh whim he visited in January, from continuing to pursue one of the best quarterbacks in the western region.

Eubank’s stock shot up even more when after the NUC All-World Gridiron Classic. In the practices leading up to game, the 6-5 220 Michael Eubank was drawing comparisons to this year’s Heisman Trophy winner Cam Newton not only in his stature but also with his dual threat abilities as a signal caller.

The now ASU QB didn’t disappoint in this high school all-star game, as he led his team to victory and captured MVP honors with his performance. He was a perfect 6-6 for 125 yards and two touchdowns, including the game-winning touchdown pass with 49 seconds left in the game, to give Team World a 20-17 victory over Team NUC.

As a result he was upgraded to a four-star prospect by and ranked 18th nationally in his position.

Stats and rankings aside ASU is just happy to have its highest rated commit in the fold.
