Arizona State recruiting has reached into Florida and snagged a linebacker.
Paul, 6-foot, 225-pounds, also had offers from Louisville, LSU, Tennessee, Auburn, Michigan, Rutgers, South Florida, Texas Tech, Cincinnati, West Virginia and Central Florida.
According to ESPN Recruiting, Paul was a standout at the Orlando Nike combine prior to his senior year, posting an electronically-timed 4.48 40-yard dash, 4.47 20-yard shuttle and 38.9-inch vertical.
Paul is the Sun Devils' 10th commitment for a class that figures to be small because the 2010 team featured only 13 seniors. Another Lakeland prospect, three-star offensive guard Devin Goodman, has also picked Arizona State.
