Evangel’s Blake Shapen decommits from ASU

  • Joel Rodgers

I want to thank the ASU football & baseball staffs for giving me a scholarship to play both, but I am decommitting and reopening my recruitment.

-Blake Shapen, Evangel Christian Academy

Evangel’s Blake Shapen is one of the best high school football AND baseball players in the state of Louisiana.  Back in June, Shapen committed to play both sports at Arizona State University, but now he’s taking his talents elsewhere. We’re not sure where, but someone is about to land a stud.

Thursday Shapen took to Twitter to announce.

The move could have something to do with Arizona State offensive coordinator Rob Likens being fired.

Shapen becomes the second Shreveport guy to decommit from a D1 school this week. Calvary’s Eric Reed Jr. decommitted from Ole Miss earlier this week.
