Kyle Caldwell, a 6-4, 250 pound defensive lineman Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro has committed to Arizona State. Caldwell made his announcement in front of a small gathering of friends, family and local media at his grandfathers house.

"I knew Sunday when I got back home from UCLA that I wanted to be a Sun Devil," Caldwell said. "There was a lot of factors that went in to it but basically, I just felt like I wanted to be a part of what ASU is doing and help them get back to where they were when my dad played there.

Caldwells' father Bryan played for ASU in the early 80s and his 19982 team had the No. 1 ranked defense in the country and knocked off Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl.

"They're going to let me wear my dad's old #50 jersey so that's cool," Caldwell said. "I'm just so close to the program here and feel comfortable with the players and coaches. It was a tough decision and UCLA had a lot to offer. Their coach Gary Bernardi coached my dad in high school and I was real close with him throughout the whole process.

"I'm just excited to have this decision out of the way now. it's been a fun process but I'm glad it's over and I hope to make an immediate impact at ASU when I get there next year."
