After transferring to ASU prior to the 2022 season from Nevada, OL Aaron Frost was sidelined for the entire year due to an ACL tear.
Now, the 6-foot-5, 306-pound grad student, who started 30-plus games in four years for the Wolfpack, is back and feeling healthy and ready to go.
New head coach Kenny Dillingham and the Sun Devils held Frost out of spring camp as well, but he will finally play for ASU this fall.
“I feel amazing,” Frost said. “I felt like I could have went back then (in the spring), but they wanted to take the time, make sure it heals right. They said the longer you wait, the better your recovery is. So I listened to my training staff, and I focused on getting stronger. I’m ready to show out this season.”
Frost played his high school ball on both sides of the line at Long Beach Poly (California) and was a three-star recruit in the class of 2018.
At Nevada, he started seven games his true freshman year and all 13 games in 2019 for an elite Nevada offensive line. He named an All-Mountain West Second Team selection in 2020 and 2021, and he is looking to get back to that level in the 2023 season. In total, Frost played over 2,500 snaps for the Wolfpack.

Heading into fall camp, Frost said he wants to improve on his pass and run blocking after new O-line coach Saga Tuitele implemented a new pass blocking formation. “I feel like I’ve really learned it, and I want to get better with that,” Frost said.
Frost knows that now is go-time with a new scheme and new-look offensive line that many have doubted.
With all that he’s been through, Frost said: “There’s a lot of pent up anger right here. I’m ready to get back on the field.”
