Arizona State secures transfer commitments from trio of defenders
Arizona State hit a triple on Sunday. The Sun Devils landed transfer commitments from New Mexico State safety Myles Rowser, Purdue edge rusher Roman Pitre, and Louisville defensive tackle Jeff Clark.
They’re the 18th, 19th, and 20th known transfer pledges during the winter cycle, adding to a transfer class that ranks 11th in the country. As he approaches Year 2, Dillingham is once again looking to reload the roster through the transfer portal.

Rowser is a 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety who spent one season at Campbell and then one season at New Mexico State. He surprised folks when, after a recruitment that featured verbal commitments to Michigan and Arkansas, he flipped to Campbell. He earned FCS Freshman All-America honors after posting 44 tackles, one tackle for loss, three pass breakups, and one interception in 10 games.
After transferring to New Mexico State, Rowser played in all 15 games and totaled 70 tackles. He joins ASU with three years to play two.

Pitre comes to ASU with three seasons of eligibility remaining after spending two seasons in West Lafayette. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Pitre redshirted in 2022 and did not play during the 2023 season. He’ll add depth to a room that features Prince Dorbah and Clayton Smith.

The 6-foot, 290-pounder appeared in 13 games as a reserve defensive tackle, finishing the season with 14 tackles and two tackles for loss.
He has one season of eligibility remaining.
