Liss, a Buckeye Verrado High School graduate, last played in 2020 at Colorado State as a walk-on freshman.
He was a perfect 11 of 11 on PATs and went 4-for-7 on field goals, including a career-long 48-yarder.
Liss did not play in 2021 after entering the transfer portal in August.
Arizona State wasn’t the most constant kicking team last season.
Between redshirt junior Cristian Zendejas and graduate student Logan Tyler, the two kickers went 8-for-13 (61.5%) on field goals.
Zendejas had the longest make for the Sun Devils in 2021 from 40 yards out.
Liss marks the fourth transfer portal commit this month alone, following defensive tackle Nesta Jade Silvera (Miami), quarterback Paul Tyson (Alabama) and running back Xazavian Valladay (Wyoming).
Arizona State also signed three-star kicker Carter Brown out of Dawson High School in Pearland, Texas, on national signing day in December.
