Will Sutton played his high school football at Centennial High School in Corona, California. He chose ASU over Arizona, Washington, Boise State, Nebraska, and a host of other schools.
Sutton made an immediate impact as a freshman in 2009, appearing in all 12 games and making 2 starts. He finished his freshman season with 17 tackles, 3 TFL, a sack, and a forced fumble.
Sutton’s sophomore campaign would be over before it started due to academic issues. Sutton came back in 2011 in great shape and it showed on the field. The sophomore would tally 33 tackles, 5.5 TFL, and 2.5 sacks in 12 starts. Sutton’s burst and explosion were off the charts in 2011 and set the tone for a phenomenal junior season in 2012.
Sutton burst onto the national scene and NFL Draft radar after finishing his junior season with 63 tackles, 23.5 TFL, and 13 sacks. He would earn Consensus All American honors to go with Pac-12 Defensive Player of Year honors.
Many expected Sutton to bolt for the NFL but he opted to remain at ASU for his senior season.
Sutton is the son of Mickey Sutton, who played five NFL seasons at defensive back and punt returner. Read the rest of this entry » «2014 NFL Draft: Preseason Scouting Report – Will Sutton»
