The 6’3″ 215 lb redshirt junior decided to forgo his final year of eligibility as a Sun Devil to capitalize on his record-setting 2014 season as he looks ahead to a NFL future. His 82 receptions in 2014 were good for third in the Arizona State record books for receptions in a single season. He also totaled 1,165 yards receiving which places him fifth for a single season in that category, in addition to 10 touchdowns. He also racked up the accolades to finish his collegiate career – Phil Steele All-Pac-12 (First Team), Phil Steele All-American (Third Team), Sporting News All-American (Second Team), Sports Illustrated All-American (Second Team), CBS Sports All-American (Second Team), ESPN.com All-American, Biletnikoff Award Semifinalist, and All-Pac-12 First Team. The Philadelphia-native is a projected first round pick this May.
