Just two days before National Signing Day on Wednesday, the ASU Football program has added two commits to their 2015 recruiting class.
Linebacker Jay Jay Wilson and defensive back Kareem Orr both committed to play football at Arizona State on Monday. Wilson and Orr make four consecutive defensive players that Todd Graham has brought in over the past month, a clear side that the ASU head coach wants to continue adding talent to that side of the ball which showed so much promise late in the year.

Wilson, who comes from Valencia, Calif, is a four-star player on 247Sports.com. Listed as an outside linebacker, an athlete and a wide receiver on the site, Wilson visited Tempe on Jan. 16 and pulled the trigger for the Devils a few weeks later.
Like Wilson, Orr visited the Tempe campus on Jan. 16. A few days later, he listed ASU as his favorite, ahead of the likes of Louisville, Indiana and Oklahoma before he eventually announced his commitment.
Orr is not highly as ranked as Wilson is, but 247 Sports still ranks him as a three-star player and one of the 15 best players in the state of Tennessee. Standing at six-foot and weight 185 pounds, Orr attends Notre Dame High School in Chattanooga.
The Sun Devils class currently stands at 21 commits, but there’s still enough scholarships to add a few more guys. Graham and his staff are still in on a few of the top remaining uncommitted players in the nation, including Snoop Dogg’s son, Cordell Broadus.
One of the things that you have to really like about this class is how balanced it is. It’s pretty much split between offensive and defensive players and Graham has hit both sides of the lines especially hard, with seven committed players playing at the line of scrimmage. That’s how you build a championship football team.
