Felix pledges to Sun Devils

Felix pledges to Sun Devils

There is no place like home and Carrick Felix proved that adage on Saturday evening when he committed to ASU during his official visit.

The Southern Idaho wing, who prepped at Goodyear (Ariz.) Millennium high school opened up his recruitment after getting his release from Duke and was pursued by over two dozen schools from that point on. Yet, all he needed was one visit following that release, to the hometown Sun Devils, to realize where he wanted to spend his college career.

When he attended Millennium Carrick Felix was on the Sun Devils' radar. Felix paced his squad with 19.7 ppg, 13.2 rpg and 3.1 bpg, and was integral in Millennium's 4A championship run in 2008.

The wing player ultimately went the junior college route and attended Southern Idaho College. The beginning of Felix's tenure with the Eagles was forgettable as his broke his wrist and had to redshirt his first year in Twin Falls. Next season was an entire different story.

As a redshirt freshman the wing was one of the team's leading players on the 20-12 squad. He averaged 14.8 ppg (shooting 51 percent from the field) and 4.7 rpg.

His fine play with the Tigers netted him an offer with Duke, and a few weeks after signing with the Blue Devils he was granted his release.

Upon signing his scholarship paperwork Felix will become the seventh member of ASU's 2010 recruiting class. He also was the second pledge for the Sun Devils on Saturday, following Kyle Cain who committed to the maroon and gold earlier that morning.
