Arizona State has landed a second graduate transfer on the offensive line as Stanford's Henry Hattis announced on his instagram he is headed to Tempe.
Hattis, a 6-foot-6, 297-pound guard, started the first six games this season for the Cardinal before sustaining a season-ending knee injury on Oct. 5 against Washington. He also played in all 13 games the previous season as a junior.
Earlier this month ASU landed a grad transfer from Texas A&M in tackle Kellen Diesch, who already is enrolled and will be eligible to participate in spring drills.
It was an area of need for the Sun Devils who are graduating four, and possibly five players that started or saw regular playing time up front.
Coach Herm Edwards has no junior offensive linemen on the roster and just one sophomore, that being Oregon transfer Cody Shear who played only sparingly. After that it is all true freshmen or redshirt freshmen stocking that position.
The Sun Devils were so thin after the absence of Zach Robertson and a foot injury sustained by Cade Cote they had to start two true freshmen in LaDarius Henderson and Dohnovan West which is unheard of for a power 5 team.
Hattis, out of Cleveland High School in Rio Rancho, N.M, was listed as the top player in his state by four of the recruiting listings and was singled out as the second-best prospect by the other – 247Sports. He had 10 Division I offers out of high school, five of those from Pac-12 schools. ASU was one of those.
