Felix signs with Sun Devils

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Standout junior college recruit Carrick Felix has signed a letter of intent at Arizona State after being released from his Duke scholarship at his request.

The 6-foot-6 Felix, from College of Southern Idaho, had been the first junior college recruit to sign with Duke in Mike Krzyzewski's tenure as coach of the Blue Devils.

He signed with Duke in May and asked for release from his scholarship a few days later. He told the Arizona Republic that reports he failed to meet the school's academic requirements were untrue.

He said he didn't think it was the right decision "in my heart."

The Sun Devils signed 6-7 forward Kyle Cain, who had been released from his commitment to Rhode Island.

The school received the necessary paperwork from both players on Monday.
