Three-star offensive tackle Kody Koebensky from Scottsdale (Az.) Saguaro HS committed to Arizona State in the summer and made his official visit to Tempe this weekend. Despite the Sun Devils' loss to Georgia, Kody says he has no plans of changing his committment.
Koebensky tells us after his visit today, "This will be my only official. Colorado showed some interest and wanted to have me visit but did not offer and I did not go because I felt it was more important to be around my team and watch film."
At the time of his commitment, Koebensky (6-3 290) had nine offers.
Kody has been no stranger to the Tempe campus, having been on it roughly "fifteen to twenty times" and his host was no stranger either. He was hosted by former Saguaro teammate and current ASU safety Max Tabach. Tabach was also host to five-star defensive tackle Corey Adams.
Before Saturday's game, Kody says he took a tour of campus and went to some academic presentations. He plans on majoring in business and carries a 3.0 GPA and scored a 1400 on the SAT. The dorms were a new sight for Koebensky, having never seen them before.
Kody comments on the game, "It was a great experience, there was fifty or sixty thousand people there. Of course they weren't happy with the loss but Georgia is a good team, ranked number three in the nation. I still feel like we can compete with anyone in the Pac 10."
He adds, "ASU is a young team, they are playing nine true freshmen but I am happy that I am going to be a part of it and am excited for the future."
Koebensky spent this morning talking with offensive line coach Gregg Smith about his future at ASU. "He says that they would like to redshirt freshmen, "Kody comments. "But if I work my way into the two deep then I will play."
Smith sees Kody as a guard, a position that he has moved to for his senior year in high school after playing tackle prior. Regarding the transition Kody says, "The only real thing that is different is the pass blocking."
Saguaro is currently 3-0 and plays Phoenix Shadow Mountain this Friday.
