Included in the 14 high school players that are set to join ASU are 10 all-state selections.  The Red Wolves' also signed six players that received a three-star or higher ranking at some point during their careers by a recruiting web site.

The Red Wolves signed six offensive linemen, the most among any position, and have currently signed 13 players expected to play on the offensive side of the ball.  Including four defensive backs, A-State signed seven defensive players and an additional four players listed as athletes that could potentially play defense as well.
