Sun Devils report: Strategy and personnel

KEY LOSSES
Arizona State lost one of the better defensive tackles in the Pac-10 in Lawrence Guy, who left early for the NFL Draft. He didn't exactly have the standout junior season many had predicted; he had 41 tackles, including six for loss and 1.5 sacks. Arizona State also loses part-time starting DT Saia Falahola. The Sun Devils do have some experience to slide into the position, including senior Bo Moos, and the door will be open to see what signee Mo Latu can do.

PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2011:

LB Vontaze Burfict -- He'll be playing for his draft status as a true junior in 2011. He has all the physical tools, but he'll help himself if he plays with more emotional control.

RB Cameron Marshall -- A physical runner, Marshall rushed 150 times for 787 yards and nine touchdowns as a sophomore in 2010. With Marshall and speedy Deantre Lewis (92 carries on 529 yards as a true freshman), the Sun Devils seem set at tailback for the next two seasons.

LB Brandon Magee -- He made 73 tackles as a junior on the weakside. With Magee, Vontaze Burfict and plenty of other experience at the other outside linebacker position, Arizona State could have one of the best linebacker groups in the country.

CB Omar Bolden -- He's a big-play performer who had three interceptions and returned a kickoff for a touchdown as a junior. The All-Pac-10 corner thought about leaving for the NFL Draft.

PLAYER NOTES

--Redshirt freshman DB Ramon Abreu was suspended indefinitely in late January following his arrest on suspicion of sexual misconduct with a minor.

--QB Steven Threet, as of late January, was still experiencing some concussion-related symptoms, according to the Arizona Republic. He was injured in the second-to-last game of the season and did not play in finale.

--DE Junior Onyeali, who earned Pac-10 Defensive Freshman of the Year honors, was recovering from a shoulder injury after the season and could be limited in spring drills ... or he could even sit out entirely.
