Ron, as you and I have continually harped, you have to start with them young and give them a reason to want to become Sun Devils. With you and me it was the Knothole gang. They will have to be more creative now.
Look at these comments from current recruit Brock Dieu from out in San Tan Valley:
"I grew up watching ASU, Dieu told Sun Devil Source. We grew up with season tickets. So, that was kind of like a surreal thing for me because when I was little that was the only college football I ever watched. So that was like, 'Whoa.'
I think the biggest thing for this offer is I've been all around ASU my entire life and I've been going to camps a lot, Dieu said. I get on campus and get to the camps and being able to work with coach Mawae, it's been super cool. Over this quarantine, I've been able to get on the phone a couple of times with him and really gotten to know him better."
Get the kids involved with the program. Help them to see the Sun Devils as "Us." Build the allegiance early and they will come.
I know the Dieu family. They moved to Arizona fromo Southern California where the father was a big usc booster. But the kids went a different direction as they were around here to watch the Sun Devils. I would love for Brock to become a Sun Devil and hope he has a great career here.
