With his twin brother, Bryan, having committed to UCLA a couple of weeks ago, Covina South Hills…
Will Announce Commitment Tuesday
"I have an appointment at 2:00 to call the ASU coaches and will be committing at that time," Payton said. "For awhile I thought Bryan and I would be staying together but I think it's best that we go our separate ways so we make our own identities and name for ourselves without it always being the twins. "ASU liked both Bryan and I but when they found out that I hadn't committed yet, they offered and told me to come up for an unofficial visit. My dad and I went up and I just loved the place. They have a great young coaching staff that I can relate well to. Plus the football facilities and weight room are incredible and I like the defense. They're recruiting me for safety and they play a lot of sets with three safeties on the field so I think I'll be able to play early there." Payton, 6-1, 180 pounds from Covina (Calif.) South Hills has excellent size, runs well and is a play maker. He was a 2nd team All-State Underclass selection as a junior after picking off eight passes and will be a three year starter at South Hills. He could also play some corner if needed by the Sun Devils and is an excellent receiver as well.
