Arizona State QB reportedly had surgery post-spring, expected to return by fall camp
Fourth-year sophomore quarterback Trenton Bourguet had surgery after the Sun Devils wrapped spring ball in April, according to a report from The Atheltic’s Doug Haller.
Bourguet played with a fractured fifth metatarsal last season and went through the spring period with ASU battling Alabama transfer Paul Tyson for first-team reps. Haller reported that Bourguet is expected to be ready once fall camp opens.
Arizona State QB Trenton Bourguet, who played with a fractured fifth metatarsal last season, had surgery after spring ball. He's recovering well, on pace to be 100% by start of practice.
Bourguet was No. 2 behind Jayden Daniels last season and got first-team reps during spring.

The Marana, Arizona, native played in four games last season for the Sun Devils while serving as the primary backup to Jayden Daniels. He attempted only 10 passes on the year, completing seven of them for 91 yards and a touchdown.
With Daniels’ transfer to LSU, Bourguet and Tyson were thrust into a competition for the starting job during spring ball. Bourguet took first-team reps throughout, but neither emerged from the period with any clear separation.
In early May, former Florida quarterback Emory Jones announced he had committed to transfer to ASU.
The 6-foot-2 dual-threat quarterback threw for 2,734 yards last season, totaling 19 touchdowns against 13 interceptions while completing 67.5% of his passes. He also ran for 758 yards and an additional four rushing scores. Jones led the Gators as well as all SEC quarterbacks in rushing yards.
Jones is expected to be the eventual starter for ASU, so look for Tyson and Bourguet to battle with freshman Bennett Meredith for the backup job in fall camp.
