Arizona State adds another piece to its offensive line with Iowa State transfer Joey Ramos
The offensive line has been a clear area of emphasis this offseason for Arizona State.
On Monday, the Sun Devils picked up their fourth transfer commitment of the offseason on the offensive line. Joey Ramos, a fifth-year junior from Phoenix, has announced he intends to transfer from Iowa State to Arizona State. Ramos will have two seasons of eligibility to play for the Sun Devils.

After a redshirt season in 2018, Ramos appeared in 12 games for the Cyclones in 2019, then started five games in eight appearances on the offensive line in 2020. In 2021, however, he moved back into a reserve role, playing 13 games primarily as a special teams participant.
The 6-foot-5, 305-pound Ramos has playing experience as both a right tackle and a center. In 2021, he played 23 snaps along the offensive line as a center and posted the best PFF grade of any Cyclone offensive lineman. In 2020, he was on the field for more than 350 snaps.
The Sun Devils are looking to replace three starters up front this season after departures from left tackle Kellen Diesch, center Dohnovan West, and right guard Henry Hattis. Ramos joins Des Holmes (Penn State), Chris Martinez (San Diego State), and Emmit Bohle (Northern State) as transfers who will push for playing time along the offensive line.
