Tight end/defensive end Toa Tuitea of Westminster, Calif., is the 25th Arizona State football commitment.

Tuitea, 6 feet 4, 250 pounds, chose ASU over Vanderbilt. He is one of five commitments the Sun Devils picked up over the weekend.

Tuitea had 14 sacks and 27 tackles for loss as a senior. He was recruited mainly as a tight end. Steven Figueroa of Phoenix Desert Vista is the other tight end in the recruiting class."

The coaches said they're recruiting him as an athlete," Tuitea's brother Calvin said. "Coach (Dennis) Erickson said they would put him where they feel he'll be the best player. They like him on both sides of the ball. He doesn't care."
