We haven't yet seen Arizona State's name in this collection on schools that are coming after Penn State players, but coach Todd Graham has some recruiting ties to Pennsylvania due to his near-year stay at Pitt, so it makes sense that the Sun Devils could find a way in.
Multiple reports saying Arizona State is pursuing Penn State LBs Ben Kline & Nyeem Wartman.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) July 25, 2012
Kline is a redshirt freshman and Wartman is an incoming freshman. Both were rated as three-stars by Rivals and were recruited by Pitt -- Kline was once committed to the Panthers, but that ended about a month before Graham showed up. You'd have to assume Graham at least made a call to a player his inherited class had lost only weeks earlier, though.
Our own Pacific Takes ranked linebacker as perhaps ASU's weakest position group, with the talented Vontaze Burfict having taken his act to the NFL.
